Programs

Together, Feeding Pennsylvania’s nine food banks are able to accomplish more throughout the state. Our various programs focus on reducing hunger and food insecurity in Pennsylvania by bringing healthy, nutritious foods to those most in need.

Feeding Pennsylvania oversees a variety of statewide initiatives. While each program varies in size and scope, all are focused on using the resources of our food banks across the state to better serve those in need.

Agricultural Partnerships

In an effort to support farmers and Pennsylvania families in need, the PA Department of Agriculture created the Pennsylvania Agriculture Surplus System (PASS) — an innovative program for accessing healthy and nutritious surplus food produced by Pennsylvania farmers. PASS provides funding to cover the costs associated with harvesting, processing, packaging, and transporting surplus products including fruits, vegetables, eggs, dairy, poultry, pork, beef, and grains in order to donate those items to the charitable food system.
