Come Work for a Wonderful Non-Profit Company in Central Pennsylvania!

Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging:

Hunger disproportionately harms neighbors and communities that have been systemically marginalized.

We will ensure that our diverse community is reflected in our board of directors, management, staff, volunteers, partner organizations, and donors in a manner that upholds equity, inclusion, and belonging.
