The Food Bank relies on our member agencies to distribute food directly to those in need. With over 120 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 at the Food Bank for continuing education, best practices and to share their needs and successes.
