“12% of York County residents live with food insecurity and 18% of those are children. We are called to respond to this growing need in our own backyards” stated Carol Miller, JFS Program and Development Director. JFS Project Manna provides supplemental food to individuals and families who are economically stressed, and guidance to access benefits and information about local food resources. Our sister agency, the Northeast Neighborhood Food Bank provides food, clothing and support to some of the most food insecure in York County.
All are invited to register/donate to the Walkathon on May 1st .Event will be held rain or shine. Information is available at walk.jfsyork.org or by calling 717.843.5011.
