The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank has just launched a new web site The site is to bring the public's attention to the upcoming Hunger Action month in September and this campaign is an effort to continue to increase the community involvement within the 27 counties throughout Central Pennsylvania that the food bank provides the basic necessities for many families. The intent is to engage the public to participate food drives and the many volunteer activities scheduled in September and also to increase the participation of individuals and the corporate community especially with all the great volunteer events that are scheduled.

The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank began operations in 1982 and now provides some type of assistance to over 500 different orginizations in Central Pennsylvania. I can personally say as a Board Member since 2006 I can see what a difference the food bank has made in many lives. The intent of the Hungerbites sites is to show the public what can be accomplished when there is an organized effort to assist people in need. Please join us at Kipona over labor Day weekend at Soldiers Grove to make this a great beginning to Hunger Action Month. For more information on how you can help or donate food you may also visit
