Watch our 2021 Hunger Hero Award Winners' Acceptance Speeches!

The third annual Philabundance Agency Appreciation Event presented by United Healthcare is a celebration of the work done by you, our partners, to drive hunger from our communities today and end hunger for good. This special ceremony is an opportunity to acknowledge some of our exceptional members while also thanking you for your dedication to serving 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.

In 2021, you distributed millions of pounds of food. Through your work, you have helped lift your communities by providing food that feeds their bellies and food that feeds the soul. You’ve continually shown what kindness, love and care for others look like.

The COVID-19 pandemic presented many challenges, and you have stepped up and risen to every single one of those challenges. This year, your continued dedication has allowed us to continue to double the amount of food that Philabundance distributes throughout our 9-county service area.

Thank you for your partnership.

Thank you for your commitment to serve your communities.

Thank you for your belief in the Philabundance mission to drive hunger from our communities today and end hunger for good.

Thank you for all the work that you do.
