About Us


The Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida was opened in 1983. Formerly known as the Lee County Food Cooperative, the Harry Chapin Food Bank has served as the only Feeding America food bank in Southwest Florida.

We’ve partnered with more than 150 agencies that provide direct services to those in need, including church food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, disaster relief agencies and more. Today, the food bank provides food for more than 28,000 individuals each week. In fiscal year 2015-2016, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed 20.6 million pounds of food, provided 17 million meals, and turned every $1 into $8 worth of food for those in need.
