For more than 35 years, Philabundance has focused on providing emergency food for our communities. While this is vitally important to relieving hunger today, in 2019 Philabundance officially expanded our mission to include a focus on understanding and addressing the root causes of hunger. We call this work Ending Hunger for Good (EHFG).
Softening the Line
Ending the Line
Many of our neighbors are faced with a cycle of no-win decisions: Do I buy food or medicine? Heat or eat? Pay for lunch or a bus pass? Ending Hunger For Good (EHFG) is Philabundance’s bold initiative to disrupt the cycle of spending tradeoffs between food and other necessities that perpetuate food insecurity.
By pairing food with the social determinants of health interventions provided by other community organizations, Philabundance will increase stability and long-term overall food security in the communities we serve, while helping to shorten the line at area food distribution sites.
