For the week of November 2nd, the York County Food Bank will be holding its weekly Drive-Thru and Walk-Up Distributions on Wednesday, November 4th, rather than Tuesday, November 3rd. Our Drive-Thru distribution at 1094 Haines Road will be held on November 4th from 4:30 to 6:30pm. Our Walk-Up Distribution at 254 W. Princess Street will be held on November 4th from 4:00-5:00PM.
The York County Food Bank does not endorse candidates or political parties but does advocate for every American’s right to vote. This postponement is to encourage Food Bank staff, volunteers, community partners, and those we serve to get out and vote. “As an organization with county-wide visibility, we feel it is a great responsibility of ours to model civic engagement and to encourage all our affiliates to vote this year and in all future elections,” said President & CEO Jennifer Brillhart.
The Food Bank will return to its regular schedule of Tuesday food distributions the following week, on Tuesday the 10th.
How can you help?
At this time, the Food Bank needs your help now more than ever. If you have the means to donate financially, please consider making a donation so the Food Bank can purchase large quantities of food and necessary supplies to meet the need.
The Food Bank is also in need of healthy volunteers. Please visit the Food Bank’s website to learn more about volunteer needs and sign up for a volunteer shift.
