Pantry Gains New York Location with Help from York County Food Bank


Harvest of Blessing Food Pantry reopens to the public with a new location in York.

With help from the York County Food Bank, the nonprofit successfully moved into its new space at 264 W. Princess St.

“I’ve always wanted it to look like a grocery store, people can see what they want and have a choice,” said Jural Toby, CEO of Harvest of Blessing. “It’s the best way to do it – to give customers choice. It’s a win-win.”

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Harvest of Blessing closed its location at 254 W. Princess St. and moved the majority of food distribution events to a warehouse on Haines Road.

The search for interior space to allow for more space and storage provided Harvest of Blessing with the opportunity to move into a location at the York County Food Pantry.

Jennifer Brillhart, President and CEO of York County Food Bank, said she was grateful for the new partnership which enables the two nonprofits to better serve the residents of the City of York in food aid.

The non-profit organization – which has been in existence for 17 years – has served 1,765 households since September.
