Due to the Coronavirus the Hershey Food Bank has made changes to the way we operate by using new protocols to mitigate the virus and minimize personal interactions.
These protocols are now in effect:
1. We plan on continuing to be open during our normal schedule: First and third Thursday of each month 9:00-11:30 and 5:00 – 7:00.
2. Clients are to follow the parking attendant instructions and stay in their cars.
3. Until further notice clients may not shop so that we maintain the guidelines of social distancing.
4. Volunteers will bring the food to the clients' cars.
5. We will continue to provide food as usual; non perishables, meat, dairy, produce, paper and personal care items (provided we have all of these in supply).
6. If you are not a client but are in need of food and reside in Hershey / Derry Township please email us. We are here to help if we can. firstname.lastname@example.org
For our Volunteers:
Please do not volunteer if you are ill, have any concerns, or don’t feel comfortable. We want you to stay healthy.We thank you for your time and commitment to our mission. You are an amazing group and we couldn’t do this without you! We are blessed and appreciate the support we have received from so many willing to serve and support our efforts.

This makes it more difficult for us to maintain our stock since we can only purchase a few items at a time instead of 10 or 20 cases of each item. This is also more costly as we used to buying in large quantities and only when on sale.
How much food does the food bank use? Lots! At our last
distribution we served 212 families and used over
