Welcome to the Power Packs Project!

Jade and Family3


Proudly celebrating 10 years of empowering food-insecure families in Lancaster County.




***** Summer Distributions are underway! Click for details *****

At Power Packs, we recognize that food insecurity can happen to anyone, and when it does, the affects can be far-reaching.  

The Power Packs approach combines recipes, meal packs and education so that food insecure families can develop skills in meal preparation and stretching their food dollar. We are not just feeding people. We are EMPOWERING them to take care of themselves.


Become a Power Packs Summer Giving Blitz Booster!


Summer can be scary for food-insecure families. No access to free and reduced price breakfast and lunch.  Kids are home all day. Rising grocery bills.

Power Packs helps by providing weekend meals, recipes and nutrition education for 8 weeks during the summer. Fresh produce, fresh milk, the ingredients to make a healthy meal for the whole family, staples like cereal and peanut butter, nutrition tips – it’s all in the Pack!

Your donation can help us reach our goal!  

  • 10-week Giving Blitz.
  • $2,000 a week.
  • 400 families served.

We can do it…together!!!


Long Term Solutions

Power Packs provides weekend food and nutritional information to families who are food insecure when the school's lunch program is not available to them.  Families are taught how to stretch their limited food dollars using the food provided by PPP.   The goal of the program is to empower families to regularly provide healthy meals and that children return to school, well-fed and ready to learn.  Power Packs provides long-term solutions to end childhood hunger.
