We believe that in a community like ours, no child or adult should go to bed hungry. No family should have to choose between food on the table or a roof over their heads. That’s why Bucks Knocks Out Hunger is an important cause. There aren’t many organizations that provide food pantry fundraisers that support so many food pantries in the local community. Bucks Knocks Out Hunger, our food pantry fundraiser, helps thousands of people every year. With more donations, that number can continue to grow.

We also work with many provide Bucks County housing groups and organizations to help families in need. Many times, people who go hungry struggle with shelter or a steady income. Bucks County housing groups and agencies, such as ours, can help people with the cost of shelter and food. We advocate for the less fortunate through our Bucks County housing groups and food pantry programs.
