A Team Dedicated to Feeding Our Local Community
The Northampton Area Food Bank (NAFB) is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization in Northampton, Pennsylvania formed in 1992 by a group of local churches. We initially served about 50 families, operating out of a very small borrowed building.
As years passed, the needs of the community increased and we continued to answer the clarion call to assist our neighbors. We then opened a new facility in 2007 that was made possible through the generosity of donors, the contributions of local businesses, and the time and talents of hardworking and dedicated volunteers.
People We Serve
Currently, over 500 families are registered with our organization. We also serve an average of 400 to 450 families in the Northampton Area School District and its adjacent areas. The number of people we help continues to rise every month.
Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP)
We now offer the CSFP to individuals aged 60 and older with proof of an income level of 130% of the federal poverty level or lower. People who qualify will receive a monthly box of food provided by Second Harvest Food Bank, the organization that gives us provisions for distribution.
Support Our Cause
We welcome the community’s compassion, ongoing financial support, and food donations to help us sustain our efforts, meet our growing needs, and develop innovative programs and additional services. Since we are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all monetary contributions given to us are tax deductible as allowed by the law.
The Northampton Area Food Bank is affiliated with the Northampton Ecumenical Clergy Association and is a participating member agency of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Lehigh Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania.
