Food donations from our community greatly offset the operating costs of this weekly program. Without these donations, this program would not be possible. We gladly accept donations from individuals, businesses and families. These donations are a great way of giving back and involving your family or co-workers in learning about poverty and hunger right in our own back yard!

Food donations can be placed in Cocoa Packs bins at Karn’s, Hershey Middle School, or Hershey Elementary School.  

Consider signing up to become a monthly food donor at!/showSignUp/30e094ea8ac2ba20-cocoa3.  

You can also use food delivery services, such as  Amazon Market, and ship donations to our location at Cocoa Packs, 500 Homestead Rd, Room 130B, Hershey, PA  17033.   

Food Drives

Food donations help offset our operating costs.   If you would like to organize a food drive at your work place, community group, church, or neighborhood, you may contact Megan Moffett at for more information. 

 Also, consider designating Cocoa Packs as the recipient of your United Way donations and your charity of choice on AmazonSmile!




As previously mentioned, the heart of our operation is the donation of food from the community. Food drives from church groups, scout groups, groups at work, student groups and the office, etc, helps us tremendously. Even neighborhoods getting together are a great way to get to know one another and do good work!
