There is no single solution to food poverty, but there are immediate steps and long-term strategies that make a definitive impact in the communities we serve. With 13 trucks on the road, 6 days a week, Philabundance can respond to the critical needs of the Delaware Valley by increasing access to emergency food for those who need it most. In addition, by addressing the issue of food poverty, we are also strengthening the hunger safety net for future generations by improving access to food assistance resources..
- Food Acquisition – Our dedicated staff works with the food industry, manufacturers and importers, farms and local communities to secure and bring food resources that Philabundance distributes to neighbors in need.
- Logistics- Philabundance operates two centrally located warehouses and a fleet of 13 trucks. The Galloway location houses perishables with an average turnaround of only 2 days, while our Berks Street Location maintains our stock of shelf-stable items. Last year Philabundance distributed 19 million pounds within our network, plus an additional 2 million pounds to neighboring food banks.
- Direct Services - Our series of direct service programs enables Philabundance to improve public access to emergency food to those struggling to find food. This includes programs like our Food Help Line, Emergency Food Boxes, Community Food Center and more. Click here for a complete list of programs.
- Member Agencies - About 500 food cupboards, neighborhood distribution centers, shelters and more comprise the Philabundance network. Along with our direct distribution programs and Community Kitchen, they are the frontline of our operation.
