Healthy Food Pantry Project

The Healthy Food Pantry Project (HFPP) is a statewide initiative started by the Cent$ible Nutrition Program that aims to partner with food pantries to increase the nutritional well-being and health of food pantry patrons. We understand that each pantry across the state is run by caring and dedicated directors, managers, and volunteers, who have spent countless hours making your pantry a source of food in your community. We are here to help you in those efforts! Through the HFPP, CNP is able to help food pantries meet nutritional needs of patrons through a variety of efforts, including receiving healthy donations, offering fresh fruits and vegetables to patrons, and using simple techniques to make healthier options more visible. To learn more, browse some of our resources below, check out our success stories, or contact your CNP Educator.
