The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, which serves Bradford and Lycoming counties, has received $1,226,743 in tax credits through the state’s Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP). The funding will be used to combat food insecurity by using mobile food pantries to serve those in need.

NAP encourages private sector investment in public projects by providing tax credits to businesses that donate to support projects that address community problems.

The food bank expects to serve 130 sites, distribute 8.6 million pounds of nutritious food, provide 3.7 million pounds of fresh produce and reach nearly 35,000 people.
