Gov Wolf Thanks Pennsylvania's Food Banks for Helping Those in Need

Governor Tom Wolf is thanking food banks, farmers, volunteers and others across the state for helping to feed Pennsylvania families during the pandemic. The governor visited the York County Food Bank's East York Emergency Food Hub, which provides groceries to approximately 2,000 families each Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

"Pennsylvania's network of food banks is helping to provide fresh and nutritious meals for Pennsylvania families as the state safely reopens," said Gov. Wolf. "I want to thank all of the volunteers, farmers, food producers, non-profits and businesses that are donating and supporting food banks across the state."

The York County Food Bank has provided 2.4 million meals and volunteers donated more than 4,000 hours at drive-thru, walk-thru and pop-up distribution at locations throughout the county since the COVID-19 pandemic started.
