STEP AmeriCorps partnered with the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank (CPAFB) and Feeding America for their service project during Hunger Action Month in September. Hunger Action Month raises awareness on the issue of hunger in our communities by raising our collective voices to advocate, educate, and work together to end hunger and food insecurity.
STEP AmeriCorps members packed 200 boxes for the Food Bank's PA Senior Food Box Program. Each box contained shelf-stable pantry items including green beans, peas, corn, black beans, canned chicken, yams, pears, peanut butter, broth, cereal, rice, and juice. These boxes of nutritious food are distributed monthly to low-income seniors to improve the health, nutrition, and wellbeing of their lives.
