Harry Chapin Food Bank is doing everything in our power to ensure that no one has to go hungry, especially during this unprecedented pandemic.

We will do our best to keep you all informed on where you can get food and how you can help.

Our mission is to lead our community in the fight to end hunger.

Our vision is that no one has to go hungry in our community.

Take Action

About 151,600 people in the five Southwest Florida counties we serve struggle with hunger, which means they may not know where their next meal is coming from. Here are three ways to help.

Faces of Hunger

We feed roughly a quarter of a million people a month through our partner agencies and our Fulfill Mobile Pantries program. The people we serve include children, families, seniors and veterans.

They may have just lost a job or may be underemployed. They may be battling illness, struggling on a fixed income or dealing with a life-changing circumstance such as divorce or the death of a loved one. We are here to help.
