Located at 909 National Pike W., Brownsville PA 15417, Food Helpers is Washington County's leader for helping those who are fighting against hunger. Over 35 years as a non-profit organization, our programs have been providing groceries and nutritional information/education to food insecure residents of Washington County. According to Feeding America, it is estimated that Washington County currently has over 26,000 people who are food insecure, and through our programs, our goal is to ensure no one goes to bed hungry. In the past several years, we have challenged the food banking model to broaden our methods of fighting hunger beyond a simple box of non-perishable items. With four unique programs offered to those in need, we can not only feed the hungry, but also provide training and life skills, offer highly discounted clothing and home goods, as well as providing farming education for growing one's own food.
The ultimate goal of Food Helpers is to weaken the
chain of events that leads to food insecurity.
