Direct Distribution

We have three initiatives that provide direct support in response to a specific need in our community.

  • Weekend Backpack Program helps children get the nutritious and easy-to-prepare food they need to get enough to eat on the weekends.
  • Summer Food Boxes help school age children and their families receive nutritious, easy-to-prepare non-perishable food during the summer vacation months at their participating member agency or youth center.
  • Emergency Response – In the event of a weather or other emergency, the Food Bank collaborates with the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) to serve those affected in Chester County.
