Hunger-Free Lancaster Coalition

We are a coalition of more than 40 organizations representing multiple sectors: business, nonprofit, education, government, faith-based and media. Collectively, we are committed to one mission: building a hunger-free Lancaster County by creating a nutritious, accessible and sustainable food system.

We have set an audacious but achievable goal: to ensure sustainable access to three healthy meals a day for every Lancastrian by 2020.
