Agency Zone

Member Agencies and the Chester County Food bank work together and maintain a positive partnership with the vision of ensuring Chester County’s food insecure community access to real, healthy food. Each member agency plays a unique role in this work. Our work together is about more than food. It is also about capacity, support, engagement, education and advocacy.

Application for National School Lunch Program (Free & Reduced Price School Meals)

In addition to support from a local food cupboard, school age children in your home may also be eligible for a free or reduced-price school meal. The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions.  You can find the PA Household Application here (en español). All household applications must be returned to your child’s school for processing.


The Food Bank relies on our member agencies to distribute food directly to those in need. With over 160 member agencies — ranging from pantries and shelters to faith-based organizations and schools — the Food Bank is able to quickly and efficiently get food into the hands of those in Chester County struggling with hunger and food insecurity.

We not only provide each agency with nutritious shelf stable and fresh foods, we also host quarterly meetings for continuing education, best practices and to share their needs and successes.

If you are interested in becoming a member agency, please contact Laura Bender, Agency Relations Manager.
