How far can your dollar go when you donate money to a food pantry?

Take a look at our infographic, which compares what $43 will buy you at a grocery store vs. a food bank.

 

Spoiler Alert! Your dollar will go much further with monetary donations to a food pantry because pantries can purchase from food banks for better-than-wholesale prices.

By donating cash to the Winter Food Drive, you are helping food pantries:

 

1. Buy food in bulk quantities at less-than-wholesale prices, so you help feed more families.

2. Fill the gaps on their shelves with essentials and more nutritious options. Each pantry may have different needs, so this allows them to buy more of what they need.

3. Purchase perishables that can't be donated in traditional food drives such as bread, milk, eggs, and meats.

Plus, collecting monetary donations help with COVID-19 safety... In an effort to continue mitigating the spread of COVID-19, we encourage monetary donations to limit the need for in-person interactions. You can donate online or by mailing a check to United Way of Franklin County, 182 S. Second St., Chambersburg, PA 17201. Thanks for helping us keep our community safe, healthy, and fed!
