Hunger-Free Lancaster Coalition


We are a coalition of more than 30 organizations representing six sectors: business, nonprofit, education, government, faith-based and media. Collectively, we are committed to one mission: building a hunger-free Lancaster County by creating a nutritious, accessible and sustainable food system.

Together with our chairman, retired State Senator Mike Brubaker, we have set an audacious goal: to ensure sustainable access to three healthy meals a day for every Lancastrian by 2018.
