Philabundance

PhilabudanceHappy Wednesday! We hope everyone had a spectacular Memorial Day and a special thank you to all of our veterans and serving military members and families for all that you have given back to us!

Part of our team kicked off their long weekend with Philabundance, the largest hunger relief organization in the greater Philadelphia region. With cheerful smiles and warm hearts, our fabulous brand rep, Vanessa, and our Regional Manager of Philadelphia, Danielle, volunteered on Friday to help Philabundance get one step closer to filling the hunger gap by providing relief to many people throughout the region.

Danielle and Vanessa teamed up with other volunteers and members of the organization to help sort and pack emergency and supplemental food packages to be distributed help those in need. Through a network of over 500 partners and many volunteers like Danielle and Vanessa, Philabudance is tackling the hunger issue head on, one meal at a time.

Since launching two years ago, Smart Lunches has partnered with Philabundance donating hundreds of prepared meals to shelters and centers when the winter weather strikes and schools are closed for snow days. The goal is to help relieve those impacted most by the storms and frigid temperatures.

Philabundance

Philabundance was founded as a nonprofit food distribution system in 1984, to reduce food waste and fight hunger in the Delaware Valley. In 2005, Philabundance integrated with the Philadelphia Food Bank to become the region’s largest hunger relief organization. Today, Philabundance offers a full plate of services to Delaware Valley residents at risk of chronic hunger and malnutrition.

As the region’s largest hunger relief organization, Philabundance reaches 9 counties across the Delaware Valley in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We provide food to approximately 72,000 people each week through our direct service programs and through a network of 500 agencies, including food cupboards, shelters, social service agencies, emergency kitchens and neighborhood distribution programs. We have volunteer opportunities available for corporations, organizations, schools, places of worship, civic groups, and individuals.
