Donations of food help us stock the shelves of the over 35 food cupboards and 61 meal sites they we serve at no cost to the organization. Shelf stable food donations are an integral part of of our work to serve our Chester County neighbors that are food insecure. We are seeing an increase in the number people that are going to cupboards for assistance, but may not qualify for SNAP or other government nutrition assistance programs. Donations from the community enable us to give food to anyone in need. Click here to see how to get started and our most needed items.
HOST A FOOD DRIVE
For your food drive, decide if you will collect food, funds or both. We do not provide boxes. Copy paper boxes and plastic totes work well for most organizations. Any food drive is most appreciated! Consider having a theme to your food drive. It’s an easy way to promote your food drive and makes it fun for your group, organization or business.

Please consider transportation as part of your organization’s donation. After your event and food drive, you can deliver the food to a pantry near you or deliver to the Chester County Food Bank (650 Pennsylvania Drive in Exton). We accept food donations Monday – Friday 8a-4p. Please deliver to our warehouse/loading dock entrance. Contact Anne at 610-873-6000 ext. 103 or firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your food drive and delivery date.
