Hempfield Area Food Pantry is a member agency of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank fulfills its mission by working in partnership with a network of community agencies that directly serve people who are hungry. Member agencies rely on the Food Bank for monitoring support, information, training, and coordination of several Food Bank programs that serve select groups of people that are severely at-risk of being hungry.
The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank is an independent entity with a Board of Directors consisting of community volunteers. The Food Bank is also a member of America's Second Harvest-The Nation's Food Bank Network, comprised of more than 200 food banks and food-rescue programs.
