Getting Involved
The Hershey Food Bank and Community Outreach needs your help.

These last few years have been difficult for many in our community. Some of our neighbors have suffered through extra hard times with severe weather and the continued weak state of the economy. As a result, the number of families in need has been steadily increasing. You are the key to the success in helping to meet their needs. There are a number of ways you can help us serve the ever-increasing needs of the unemployed, underemployed and less fortunate in our community.

* Organize a food drive. Invite your neighbors, family, club members, and co-workers to participate.

* Organize a fundraiser. We can help by providing literature, volunteer speakers, etc.

* Donate gift cards from local supermarkets.
Mail them to P.O Box 205, Hershey, PA 17033.

* Consider helping us financially. Maybe become a regular supporter with a monthly contribution. Every dollar counts, and we appreciate any amount.

* Consider requesting cash donations to the Hershey Food Bank & Community Outreach in your honor for: birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Donations will be acknowledged if requested. See our donations page.

 * Organize a "casual dress day" at your company or organization to benefit the Hershey Food Bank.
