Yep, you read that right. As of 8/31/2018, we have served 20,042 people since 1/01/2010.
Because we are a local organization, we have helped over 10,323 households in Columbia, Mountville, West Hempfield Township and Manor Township!
Because of the support of local donors, food donations, and the community, we have provided enough groceries for over 429,303 meals since 2010.
Due to our physical constraints, our volunteers have to handle every pound of food 10 times, so, in effect, they have had to handle over 4,575,000 pounds of food to provide 429,303 meals to over 20,000 people in over 10,300 households.
30.0% of our Clients are 0 to 17 years of age
54% are 18 to 59 years of age
16% are 60 and older
Our goal is to provide healthy meal options with the food available in our inventory. The amount of food provided is enough for 24 to 25 meals per month for each eligible adult and child in a single household. An adult with three children would receive enough food for 96 to 100 meals each month.
