As food insecurity continues to threaten Pennsylvanians and the restaurant industry continues to struggle, the Pennsylvania brewery scene continues to thrive. According to Breweries in PA, Pennsylvania is home to more than 400 breweries.

To fight hunger in Pa, the brewing industry will use its popularity to encourage fundraising donations. Feeding Pennsylvania, a nonprofit fighting food insecurity, partners with PA Eats and Breweries in PA in November for an inaugural month-long fundraising campaign called Hops For Hunger.

The concept for the campaign came from Feeding Pennsylvania Community Manager Corinne Foster, who is also a central Pennsylvania food blogger, Fosterthefoodie. Through his food blog, Foster incorporates different ways of partnering with local restaurants on promotions that encourage individuals to support local restaurants while raising awareness and fundraising to support anti-hunger efforts.

This once localized approach ultimately sparked the idea of ​​deploying these efforts statewide.

“Feeding Pennsylvania strives to find innovative partnerships with businesses across Pennsylvania to raise awareness of hunger issues,” said Jane Clements, Managing Director of Feeding Pennsylvania. She does so with us with her passion for local restaurants. .

“Collaborations with organizations such as Breweries in PA and PA Eats help expand our work and raise awareness and fundraise to ensure that no one in Pennsylvania goes without food,” said Clements.

PA Eats is also joining the campaign with a mission to showcase Pennsylvania’s culinary culture.

“Like our partnership with Feeding Pennsylvania, the inaugural Hops for Hunger campaign truly embodies the spirit of PA Eats – uniting our passion for Pennsylvania food and drink with our passion to help others,” said Jessica Darr, Executive Director of PA Eats.

“Hops for Hunger is more than fundraising. This is an opportunity to showcase the state’s incredible brewers, bring communities together and support those in need by helping to provide valuable Nourish PA nutrition education resources to the nearly 2 million Pennsylvanians facing cancer. hunger.

Breweries in PA helped generate community support for the inaugural event, bringing together a combined total of over 60,000 followers on Facebook and Instagram. The organization plans to use this platform to share upcoming events, specials and promotions from the Hops for Hunger campaign to help promote this year’s participating breweries.

“We are 100% behind this mission and are happy to be able to raise funds to alleviate hunger in Pennsylvania through craft beer. “
