Food Helpers*


To end hunger by creating sustainable communities through equitable aid, education and resources.

Programs and Services

  • Food Helpers is Washington County's leader for helping those who are fighting against hunger. Over 40 years, our non-profit organization has provided programs distributing supplement food and nutritional information/education to food insecure residents of Washington County.
  • The USDA and Feeding America estimate that there are about 26,000 food-insecure people in Washington County, PA. While there are many great food support programs, it is also estimated that roughly 46% of the food insecure population may not be eligible for traditional, government-funded food programs. It's hard enough to ask for help, but to then be turned away is unthinkable. This is where Food Helpers steps in, to offer aid, education, and resources for this forgotten group.
