From our Executive Director:

2019 is off to an exciting start with a new, expanded strategic direction, changes in our executive leadership and more distributions to help feed people today. But we couldn’t have gotten to this point without building the foundation of this work in 2018. All in all, it was a memorable year with many positive internal and external changes and we are grateful to you and everyone else engaged in this work as we couldn’t do what we do without you. As we enter the 35th anniversary of our organization, we hope you’ll continue to support us to drive hunger from our communities today and end hunger for good.


– Glenn Bergman, Executive Director

Looking Toward the Future

In 2014, when Philabundance launched a new strategic plan, we defined our ‘North Star’ as Ending Hunger. For Good. To accomplish this, we needed to pursue both feeding people today and initiatives focused on ending hunger in the future, and for good.

Community Empowerment

With such a huge job to do, Philabundance not only needs to engage partners to work with us, but to take on this work on its own. We focused heavily on empowering the community to help fight hunger; With our food and support, we created efficiencies by training others to take a lead role in hunger relief.

Abundantly Good is Philabundance’s brand of triple bottom line products that are good for people, planet and profit. Our goal is to create nutritious food from surplus farm products in a way that extends shelf life and adds value for our communities in need.
