Current Initiatives

Food Bank Harvest

This is a Sustainable Food Systems Program partnership project with the State College Food Bank. The mission of Food Bank Harvest is to harvest surplus produce from area farms and send it to food pantries across Centre County. Our main farm partners in 2018 include Food Bank Farm and the Penn State Research Farm.
