Increase PASS & SFPP!

Tell State Lawmakers to #SupportPaFoodBanks

Pennsylvania food banks work on the frontlines every day to serve our communities – but the charitable food network cannot end hunger alone. 

Two critical anti-hunger programs, The State Food Purchase Program (SFPP) and Pennsylvania Agricultural Surplus System (PASS), have helped ensure Pennsylvanians facing hunger have enough to eat — but only because we have invested in them. As the charitable food network is facing unprecedented challenges with inflation, supply chain disruptions, and still high demand, state lawmakers must provide additional funding for the SFPP and PASS to help fill in the gaps with healthy, locally grown products. That is why Feeding Pennsylvania and Hunger-Free Pennsylvania are seeking $24 million for SFPP and $5 million for PASS in the state’s 2022-23 fiscal year budget.

Join us in advocating for an increase in SFPP & PASS!
