Fresh Express

Fresh Express Year 2

What is Fresh Express?  Fresh Express is a year-round program operated by Central Pennsylvania Food Bank that distributes fruits & vegetables, milk, and eggs to low-income families each month.

When and where will Fresh Express happen?  Fresh Express Columbia will be on the fourth Friday of each month from 3:30-5:30 PM at Park Elementary School (50 S. 6th Street).  

Who does this program serve?  Fresh Express is open to individuals and families in the Columbia area making less than 150% of the federal poverty level (about $37,650/year for a family of 4). 

Who runs Fresh Express?  Fresh Express in Columbia is a partnership between Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, Community Action Partnership, and Lancaster General Health.    

What happens at Fresh Express?  At 2:00 PM, the Central PA Food Bank truck arrives at Park Elementary. The driver unloads food/milk in boxes on large pallets and delivers them into the cafeteria. LGH Staff and volunteers unpack the food and organize it on tables. At 3:00 PM, LGH staff and volunteers will begin checking in clients at registration. In the waiting area, clients can sample recipes and visit the vendors at each table. From 3:30-5:30 PM, clients will walk through the cafeteria and select their food items, one client at a time. Each item is labeled with the quantity they can take based on their family size. At 5:30 PM, leftover food is taken to other Columbia food pantries. Volunteers and staff clean up, and everyone is finished by 6:30 PM.
