The York County Food Bank is moving its food distribution from the former Kmart in Springettsbury Township to a church in Red Lion.

After operating for the past two years out of the closed store on Haines Road, the food bank will shift its drive-thru food distribution to Living Word Community Church, 2530 Cape Horn Road, beginning April 19, according to a news release from the organization.

Drive-thru distribution will be on the first and third Thursdays of every month from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The organization will move its warehouse operations to a facility in Emigsville, and some donors will be helping with that move over the course of several days starting Monday. Amazon, First Capital Fibers, Giant and J&D Pallets will donate trucks, trailers and drivers to assist in the move.

“We are incredibly grateful to these companies who have graciously agreed to assist with our move, as we continue fighting hunger in York County,” Jennifer Brillhart, York County Food Bank president and CEO, said in the release.

"Over the past two years the Food Bank has distributed more food than it ever has in its 40-year history," the release states. "The Food Bank’s robust response to the pandemic-driven increase in food demand would not have been possible without the support of many generous donors and volunteers that stepped up to assist."
