Financial gifts during the holiday are always greatly appreciated and helpful. During the holiday that State College Food Bank provides the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal to all of our clients, the other County Pantries for their clients, and hosts a drive-through distribution for anyone in the county, regardless of income. We also provide extra food during the month of December to help families during the holiday time. Financial gifts make all of this possible.

SCASD Drive Through Thanksgiving Event The State College Food Bank, the State College Area School District (SCASD), and the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank want to ensure that Centre County families have the food that they need for a great Thanksgiving meal. We will be distributing turkeys and groceries for a Thanksgiving feast on Tuesday, November 16 between 4:30 and 6:00pm.
The Thanksgiving distribution that is being coordinated by SCASD is for individuals and families in Centre County who are not typically clients of the State College Food Bank but could use a little extra help this holiday.
