Hunger in the midstate

  • Scott LaMar

Even with a booming economy and low jobless rate, many Pennsylvanians are food insecure.

A recent report found that even a large percentage of those working full-time have trouble paying for essentials, like food.

WITF is partnering with the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, the United Way of Pennsylvania and GIANT Food Stores to focus on raising money to buy food for those in need.

Appearing on Smart Talk are Joe Arthur, Executive Director of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, Kristen Rotz, President of the United Way of Pennsylvania, and Matt Simon, Vice President and Chief Marketing officer with GIANT Food Stores.

For every dollar you give to WITF, Giant Food Stores will match it with a one pound donation of food to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank – up to 50,000 pounds for families in need. Help make this holiday season brighter for families across our region with your gift. Every gift makes a difference. Call 1-800-233-9483 to speak to a WITF volunteer or visit
