Business Description
What is Second Harvest Food Bank The Second Harvest Food Bank of NW PA is the largest nonprofit food distribution organization in northwest Pennsylvania. Second Harvest, which has 60, 000 square feet of space, solicits, receives, inventories, stores and distributes food and grocery products to 254 member agencies that directly serve people facing hard times in 11 counties. Member agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, Kids Cafes and shelters as well as such non-emergency agencies as child care centers, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and senior centers. The counties served include Cameron, Clarion, Clearfield, Crawford, Elk, Erie, Forest, Jefferson, McKean, Venango and Warren. During 2008, Second Harvest distributed more than 7 million pounds of food to member agencies, which in turn provided food to 52, 000 unduplicated recipients. Second Harvest is part of Feeding America, the country's leading domestic hunger-relief organization. This network offers several benefits to its member food banks, including providing donated food from national manufacturers, facilitating grant applications for funding from a variety of sources, setting standards for food safety and all aspects of operations related to food banks, and providing a forum for food bank directors to help one another in their work of soliciting food and managing food distribution to those in need. Nutritious but unsalable food is donated to Second Harvest from all levels of the food industry retailers, distributors, wholesalers, manufacturers, growers as well as from food drives. The food is nutritious and usable, but due to overproduction, errors in packaging, a short code date or other reasons, it cannot be sold. Second Harvest trucks pick up donated food five days a week from area retailers, wholesalers and food drives.

Overall

You must go thru local churches to get food, stand in long lines which is difficult for me living in Harborcreek (nothing here) and in a wheelchair. I managed to go to Wayne School in Erie where I was given 48 (forty-eight) individual apple pies. They ran out of food, too, but not before someone in line with me got 6 Tops cupcakes that expired 8 before.

If you call them for help with say, a turkey they tell you to wait in line at City Mission. I can't do that, I have COPD and I'm in a wheelchair. Tough crap for me, apparently.

Don't worry, I'll still donate $1 at the grocery store, even tho I'm not sure where that $17 worth of food goes.

It is nice that they give out ...

It is nice that they give out the food but sometimes what we get is moldy or no good. The watermelons we recived last time some were no good. Also the cherry pies were moldy. But otherwise everything is good. The last time we were there they over booked people and they ran out of food. That was the church that did that.
