Harry Chapin Food Bank is prepared to distribute food and water to the people who need it as quickly as it is safe to do so. While our Fort Myers Distribution Center sustained some roof damage, the food bank remains operational and ready to serve our affected community.

Harry Chapin Food Bank will be holding an emergency food distribution at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, at Harns Marsh Middle School located at 1820 Unice Ave N, Lehigh Acres. We will also be holding a water distribution in Cape Coral at the Big John’s shopping plaza located at 1215 Cape Coral Pkwy E. We will be updating emergency distributions on our website once they are scheduled.
