Hershey Food Bank Needs Your Help!

As Downtown Hershey prepares to ring in the holiday season, the Hershey Food Bank is also gearing up for a busy time of year! In addition to your  canned goods and other nonperishable food items, the food bank provides many different supplies and varieties of food to families in need.

  • Paper products
  • Toilet paper
  • Toothpaste
  • Shampoo
  • Deodorant
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Canned fruit/soups
  • Canned spinach, lima beans, artichokes or other vegetables
  • Cake/brownie mix
  • Tuna fish
  • Canned meats (such as chili and beef stew)
  • Sugar
  • Flour

Your donations are always welcome, and The Hershey Food Bank greatly appreciates your contributions! Donations can be dropped off at the Hershey Food Bank, 120 E Derry Rd, on Mondays or Wednesdays from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm, or in the bins outside of the food bank anytime. There is also a bin for donations outside of the Hershey Public Library. Any questions regarding donations can be directed to 717.520.3143 or hersheyfoodbank@verizon.net.
