Our Food Bank in Action!

May 30, 2018

Every month our Food bank distributes food and more to hundreds of members of our local community. This process starts early in the morning with the unloading of the Greater Berks food bank truck and does not end until the last box is broken down. In May our food bank distributed food to 99 families consisting of 166 children, 159 adults and 65 seniors for a grand total of 380 individuals. Our community depends on our food bank and our food bank depends on our volunteers to keep it going.
