Hold a Facebook fundraiser so we can purchase emergency food, as well as buy cleaning and safety supplies.
During this crisis, Philabundance is working hard to distribute more food to people who need it. Despite our best efforts, we still know that federal nutrition programs are the best way for people to get the food they want and need. As a result of the Families First Act, Congress made some changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to help give qualifying individuals additional benefits.
THANK YOU to our hunger heroes!

At Philabundance, we want everyone to remain as safe as possible while still providing desperately needed services to the Delaware Valley. If you are sick, over the age of 60, immune-compromised or are in anyway considered high-risk, we strongly encourage you to stay home.
If you are able to volunteer, please know that we are taking critical steps to preventing the spread of COVID – 19, including:
- Limiting shifts to 20 people so we can practice social distancing
- Staggering volunteers so they stand at least six feet apart while volunteering
- Stepping up already rigorous cleaning procedures before and after each shift
- Asking volunteers to follow CDC safety guidelines, including: safe hand-washing procedures; staying home if showing signs of illness; sneezing into sleeves
- Providing gloves to volunteers for additional protection
