The Neighbor Helping Neighbor Food Bank exists to provide wholesome and nutritional supplemental food to Perry County families in need and to provide education about foods, food preparation, nutrition, health, wellness, and self-sufficiency in a dignified manner.
The Neighbor Helping Neighbor Food Bank is an emergency food pantry located in a facility on the Perry County Prison grounds. The primary goal is to help supplement the food budgets of qualified Perry County households, the income of which must not exceed 150% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Eligible residents are offered a variety of food in a grocery-store atmosphere – fresh produce, dairy products, canned and boxed items, and meat, as well as a small amount of personal care products, the last of which are secured through community giving. In addition to the emergency food pantry hours, the NHN Food Bank operates eight outlying food bank distribution sites, which distribute food on the third Saturday of each month with the exception of the Blain and Millerstown sites which distribute on the Friday before the third Saturday.
