Mission

Channels is a non-profit organization which collects perishable food from donors and distributes to our member agencies such as homeless shelters, soup kitchens and community centers. We have a three pronged approach -- 1.) gathering the necessary resources, 2.) food preparation and delivery and 3.) educational programs - all aimed at alleviating hunger in Central Pennsylvania.
