Harry Chapin Food Bank


Our mission is to lead our community in the fight to end hunger.

Harry Chapin Food Bank is the largest hunger-relief nonprofit and the only Feeding America member in Southwest Florida, serving Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties.

We rescue and distribute donated food and other grocery products through our food distribution programs, feeding more than a quarter of a million people who are hungry each month!

Feeding families is the core of our mission and represents most of our total food distributions. Our strategic approach involves navigating the fact that sixty percent of our five-county footprint is a food desert.

Our strategies incorporate food safety protocols, CDC protocols, innovative food procurement methods and an enormous amount of passion that no one should have to go hungry.

Harry’s Helpings is an innovative feeding program that provides emergency food kits for families at children and education centers where traditional feeding programs are not feasible due to space constraints, staffing or other reasons.

Our Care and Share Senior Feeding Program supplements the diets of more than 2,200 seniors with low-income in Charlotte, Collier, and Lee counties with nutritious, easy-to-prepare food.
