  • About the Harry Chapin Food Bank

    Harry Chapin Food Bank, a member of Feeding America, is the largest hunger-relief organization in Southwest Florida. The food bank rescues food that would otherwise go to waste and distributes it to families and others in need through a series of programs that feed 28,000 people a week. They include: Care and Share Senior Feeding Program, Harry’s Helpings, Fulfill Mobile Pantries, In-School Pantries and our Partner Agency Program, which is a network of more than 150 partner agencies in our five-county footprint.

    For every dollar donated, the food bank can provide $8 in food value. Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed $42.8 million worth of food in fiscal year 2019. Through our programs, we supplied nearly 26.7 million pounds of food and other grocery items, including 6.4 million pounds of fresh produce. The food is the equivalent of 22.2 million meals for people in need.

    Our membership with Feeding America enables us to amplify our food and distribution efforts and bring in food from various retail and grocery stores, national food producers and distributors and growers locally, nationally and even internationally.

    Harry Chapin Food Bank is proud to be named a Blueprint Partner by the Naples Children & Education Foundation (NCEF), the founding organization of the Naples Winter Wine Festival. Harry Chapin Food Bank is also a United Way partner agency. For more information or to make gift, call 239.334.7007 or visit harrychapinfoodbank.org.
