Please take a moment to watch this year’s Agency Appreciation Event video.
We hope you enjoy!
The Philabundance Agency Appreciation Event presented by Aetna is a celebration of the work done by you, our members, to drive hunger from our community today and end hunger for good. It is an opportunity to acknowledge some of our exceptional members while also thanking all 342 of you for your dedication to serve those facing food insecurity.
Philabundance hosted the first Agency Appreciation Event in September 2019 to recognize your hunger relief efforts across the Delaware Valley. For all the hard work you do behind the scenes to provide food assistance to neighbors in need, we wanted to recognize and celebrate each one of you – our Hunger Heroes.
While we are facing uncertain times, there has been no doubt in our minds that your hard work should be recognized this year.
In FY20, Philabundance was able to assist you in distributing approximately 50 million pounds of much needed food to your neighbors. In response to COVID-19, 64 of you have more than doubled the pounds of food you distributed the previous year. In addition, you have added days of service, adjusted your distribution models, taken on additional sources of food, and most importantly, stepped up when your neighbors needed you the most.
Thank you for all that you do each and every day to end hunger in our communities.
-Your Philabundance Agency Relations Team
