After an informative meeting with Marlo DelSordo of Philly organization Philabundance today I figured we should give the Non-Profit some credit!
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 nonprofit hunger relief organization. Today, Philabundance offers a full plate of services to Delaware Valley residents at risk of chronic hunger and malnutrition.
Philabundance provides several services such as: a food helpline (800.319.FOOD), Emergency food boxes (made up to feed a family for several days with staple items), Community Kitchen (vocational program which supplies food to agencies), Baby Manna (infant formula), Fresh For All (gives fresh produce to those that need it), Philabundance Gleaners (program in its development that picks up food that would otherwise be discarded from retail grocers).
Before walking to the meeting I happened to catch a Philabundance pick up time in my local neighborhood.
