Donate Money

A tough economy and high unemployment have pushed demand for emergency food and services to record levels, making community support more important than ever. Your financial contribution can help us continue to serve our Chester County neighbors that struggle with hunger and food insecurity.

Cash donations keep our freezers running and our trucks on the road. They also support our innovative programs to address the root causes of hunger through advocacy and education. Monetary donations also allow CCFB to purchase bulk food. Purchasing food in bulk enables us to pay a lower cost per pound than that of food bought at retail prices by individuals.
