As a partner food bank of Feeding America, the largest hunger relief organization in the United States, our mission is to provide supplemental food to those who are hungry and to raise awareness of hunger throughout Mercer County. Locally, our role in fighting hunger and feeding hope is to solicit, process and store large quantities of donated food, bulk produce, and USDA commodities for distribution to our member agencies throughout Mercer County, Pennsylvania. Our network of member agencies aid us in distributing food to 3,578 households each month. All member agencies are 501(c)3 charitable organizations throughout Mercer County who have a shared mission of feeding our neighbors.
The food, it helps out a lot. We have 7 kids. I had two back surgeries and my wife’s hours at work were cut. The food we are getting really works to feed our family.
The volunteers, staff, and all who help to provide the food are amazing. God bless them all.
The food we receive from the food bank means a lot. Everyone is struggling right now I know, but even with work and food stamps we are barely getting by.
Coming for food for my family is necessary. Everything right now is beyond expensive and the help we receive is appreciated.
The food bank means a lot to my family. With a family of 6 we wouldn’t ever have enough to feed our family without the food bank.
This food is a blessing in times when money just doesn’t stretch as far as it used to. Times are really tough.
