  • About the Harry Chapin Food Bank

    The Harry Chapin Food Bank, an affiliate of Feeding America, is the leading hunger-relief organization in Southwest Florida. The food bank solicits, collects and stores food for distribution to families and others in need through a network of more than 150 nonprofit agencies in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties, providing food to about 28,000 people a week.

    For every dollar donated, the food bank can provide $8 in food value. In fiscal year 2018-19, the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed nearly 26.7 million pounds of food and other grocery items, including 6.4 million pounds of fresh produce. The food, valued at $43.2 million, is the equivalent of 22.2 million meals for people in need.
