Military Share – a Produce Express Program of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest Pennsylvania, is designed to include fresh, nutritious foods for families with at least one member who has served or is serving in the armed forces or National Guard.
While the specific items distributed at the Military Share will vary based on Second Harvest’s available inventory, each eligible, registered family will receive: fresh produce, one quart of fresh milk, one dozen eggs, cheese and a box of shelf-stable pantry staples such as soup, pasta, sauce and cereal. When available, meat, fish, and poultry products will also be included. For the convenience and privacy of the individuals and families served, Military Share mobile food distributions take place on site at VA Medical Centers and armory locations throughout Second Harvest’s 11-County Service area.
Military Share is funded by donations which help to subsidize Second Harvest’s food and transportation expenses. To learn how you or your organization can help sponsor a Military Share distribution, please contact Cindy Plymyer at (814) 459-3663 x 103 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
