Cogan Station, Pennsylvania – Community members visiting the Christian church at Cogan Station’s Fresh Express food distribution on Monday, July 12 were able to take their perishables home in cooler bags thanks to a recent donation from UPMC .
The church partners with the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank monthly for Fresh Express distributions to ensure those in need have access to healthy, fresh food.
“Nutrition plays an important role in our health and it’s important that our communities have access to fresh, healthy food,” said Stan Cary, Community Outreach Coordinator, UPMC in North Central Pa.
More than 100 community members and families benefit from the program each month.
“Organizations like Cogan Station Christian Church are working to meet these needs, providing an essential service in our area. We are grateful to be able to support their efforts and the work being done to promote healthy living in our communities,” added Cary.
The Christian Church at Cogan Station’s next Fresh Express will be on Monday, August 9th.
