Midwest Food Bank of Pennsylvania
In Pennsylvania, an estimated 1 in 8 households suffers from food insecurity. An equally troubling number is the 40% of food that is wasted. That is why Midwest Food Bank is establishing its 11th location here in the Midstate.
We have leased a warehouse at 2700 Commerce Drive, Middletown, PA. We hope to begin a monthly distribution in November.
Our new facility will be an investment in the local area: a place to gather and have fellowship, a place for families to volunteer together, a community meeting space. Most importantly, it will be a place where we will share the blessings of abundance with those suffering from food insecurity.
An inaugural food distribution was held on Saturday, June 20, 2020. A semi-load of 40,000 pounds of food was delivered and distributed from the Summit International School of Ministry, Grantville, PA.
