Residents have until 11:59 p.m. Friday to vote for the food assistance nonprofit, which was selected as a finalist for the State Farm Neighborhood Assist program.

Out of the 200 nonprofits in the running, the top 40 vote-receiving nonprofits will each win a $25,000 grant, according to a news release.

The State Farm review committee selected the top 200 finalists from 2,000 submissions, according to a news release.

The York County Food Bank is a central hub of distribution through which volunteers solicit, store and distribute large quantities of food items to redistribute to the food bank's 125 local partner agencies.
