Hunger-Free Lancaster County

We’re a coalition of more than 30 non-profit, private, faith-based, government, and grassroots organizations committed to one mission: building a hunger-free Lancaster County by creating a nutritious, accessible and sustainable food system. Together with our new chairman, retired State Senator Mike Brubaker, we’ve set an audacious goal: to ensure sustainable access to three healthy meals a day for every Lancastrian by 2018.
