Volunteer Your Voice

Join us to build a movement to end hunger – use your voice to advocate for programs that relieve hunger today and end hunger for good. Legislators need to hear the message loud and clear: no one should go hungry.

Advocacy Matters

Advocacy is a powerful and effective tool in the movement to end hunger.  

In the most basic sense, advocacy is speaking up about something you believe in, in the hopes of improving a situation for yourself or others. At Philabundance, advocacy includes educating, engaging, and mobilizing our elected officials and community around policy issues that impact the people we serve. 

However, we cannot do it alone. Everyone has something to bring to the table in the fight against hunger. Your voice, perspective, and expertise matters!  

Government Food Programs

Most food assistance in this country comes from the government. Food banks like Philabundance rely on federal and state investments in critical anti-hunger programs to provide food to people facing hunger. Our Government Affairs team works to educate legislators on the need to protect and expand these vital programs to ensure that no one in our community and beyond goes to bed knowing how they will get their next meal.
