AFF Lion's Share

Donate To This Campaign

AFF’s Lion’s Share helps individuals experiencing food insecurity obtain healthy and nutritious food through monetary donations, grocery store gift cards, as well as food donations.

This year’s collection will support the Penn State Health Lion’s Pantry and Penn State Health's Family & Community Medicine (F&CM) Food as Medicine Program at Beacon Clinic.  

  • The Lion’s Pantry is located on the Hershey campus and provides to employees and students essential food.
  • Beacon Clinic is a free primary healthcare clinic downtown Harrisburg. The F&CM faculty partner with medical students to bring Beacon Clinic’s clients food as medicine along with health screenings and education.   
Financial contributions do have the greatest impact. All donations are tax-deductible and provide direct support to individuals in need. Through our partnership with Central PA Food Bank, every $1 helps provide six meals. Cash/checks (made out Penn State University with AFF Lion’s Share in the memo) or gift cards to any local grocery store are also welcome. The gift cards are used to purchase items that are not available from Central PA Food Bank.
Checks can be mailed to:
Penn State Health
Office of Development
P.O. Box 852
Hershey, PA 17033
Collection bins will be available throughout the Hershey Medical Center and College of Medicine campus to collect nonperishable items. Items requested: peanut butter, spaghetti sauce, apple sauce/fruit cups, microwavable chili/soup bowls, and healthy snacks.
