The DOC's Office of Chief Counsel is coordinating a collection of food items for the Central PA Food Bank and has set a collection bin near its main lobby. Only intended for DOC employees to contribute, the food items will go to the needy in a 27-county area. At present those in need include employees who are recovering after not receiving regular paychecks due to the federal government shutdown, including federal correctional institutions.

Until Feb. 7, items asked for include:

  • Peanut butter
  • Shelf stable fruit juice
  • Canned chicken and tuna
  • Single serve mac and cheese
  • Shelf stable milk
  • Almonds
  • Individual 4 oz. fruit cups

All items must be new, labeled, factory sealed and in good condition.
