Channels Food Rescue

Channels Food Rescue Channels helps feed those in need through multiple feeding programs and provides culinary training to low-income persons. Channels is a non-profit organization which collects perishable and non-perishable food from donors and distributes to our member agencies such as homeless shelters, soup kitchens, etc.

We have a multi-layered approach to food disparity which involves “rescuing” food, food preparation and delivery, and educational programs - all aimed at alleviating hunger in central Pennsylvania.
