The Animal Food Bank of the Lehigh Valley, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization serves the needs of pets and their low-income families throughout the Greater Lehigh Valley. Our philosophy is that, like humans, animals too deserve the basic necessities in life. It is our goal to promote the health and well-being of companion pets throughout the community. We are currently feeding over 6,000 pets every month. Helping families stay together during times of economic hardship is crucial, not only for the family, but also to the community at-large. Preventing pets from being relinquished and flooding area shelters and rescues helps decrease some of the stress on our already overwhelmed animal rescue system. We work closely with area animal welfare groups and veterinarians to provide the community with low-cost resources needed by low-income individuals and families.
 
The primary goal of the food bank is to provide pet food to low-income families. When pet supplies are donated, they too are distributed. The food bank operates much like a food bank for people, offering both emergency and monthly food distributions. When surplus food is available, we notify area no-kill shelters and rescues of its availability. We are based out of space donated by Northampton Community College at the Fowler Family Southside Center at 511 E. Third Street, Room 73 in Bethlehem, PA. We are 100% volunteer operated. 
 
The secondary goal of the food bank is education and awareness of the community on a number of levels: our registered clients, schools, organizations, human resource agencies, churches and synagogues ,and the general public.  We offer classroom education, presentations and can be seen frequently, at area community events, providing education from the Animal Food Bank of the Lehigh Valley tent. Education which stresses prevention is a major focus. Referrals to spay/neuter resources are an important part of prevention, along with maintaining the general health of pets through vaccination clinics.
 
Our website offers information about our programs, a variety of pet related information, along with announcements of pet related activities throughout the community.
 
Please visit from time to time, as our site is updated with new information.
 
Thank you
