CommonFood was established as a 501(c)3 in the State of Pennsylvania to resource under-served and under-employed elderly, single parent families, and low-income families in western Centre County and neighboring areas with nutritious food and related services. 

Food insecurity affects 13% of the population of Centre County, and this critical situation has been worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic. Resources for the work of CommonFood are procured through numerous partners including food banks, churches, restaurants, grocery stores and other interested businesses and individuals of Centre County who wish to donate time and funding.

​The organization is run completely by volunteers. No one receives any compensation or salary.

In 2019, CommonFood provided 82,966 pounds of food and 69,138 meals, positively impacting the lives of 1,573 families.

HOW TO HELP: Consider "Sponsoring a Family" by setting up a monthly reoccurring donation. Every $15 increment donated enables CommonFood to provide a monthly food distribution to one of the families we serve. That is an average of over 50 pounds of food with an average retail cost of $85.

As a disabled Veteran I only get $15.00 in food stamps and
live alone. Without CommonFood I would go hungry. I am so grateful
for this program. What a blessing.   ~ Tonya
