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.

Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation awards Harry Chapin Food Bank a $350,000 conditional challenge grant for the Care and Share Senior Feeding Program

The Care and Share Senior Feeding Program supplements the diets of a caseload of 2,200 seniors age 60 and older with low-income in Lee, Collier, and Charlotte counties. Seniors receive monthly food kits containing easy-to-prepare foods, cheese, shelf-stable fruits and vegetables, canned proteins, grains, and milk.
