Thank you for your continued partnership and support!
Philabundance is pleased to announce the generous donation of $250,000 from the Energy Transfer/Sunoco Foundation. The donation will help to provide fuel for the 2022-2023 fiscal year, allowing Philabundance to provide hundreds of thousands of meals to our communities in need.
“We are enormously grateful for this generous donation and longstanding partnership,” said Loree Jones Brown, Philabundance CEO. “During this time of inflation, as food and fuel costs remain extremely high, this donation helps make it possible for Philabundance to keep our fleet of trucks on the road, distributing fresh produce, dairy products, meat, non-perishable foods, and prepared meals to the communities that we serve. This will help people in the Greater Philadelphia metropolitan area who face hunger every day.”
Philabundance’s decade-plus partnership with Energy Transfer and Sunoco LP has resulted in more than $3.2 million dollars toward our mission to drive hunger from our communities today while working to end hunger for good. For more than 13 years, the Energy Transfer/Sunoco Foundation has generously provided financial support that goes toward the fuel needed for the Philabundance fleet of trucks, vans, and cars.
“The opportunity for our Partnership and Foundation to support Philabundance and the mission to end hunger is an incredible honor for us,” Chris Curia, Chairman of the Energy Transfer/Sunoco Foundation explained. “Strengthening local communities by prioritizing critical issues, such as hunger and health, is essential to us. The work that Philabundance does to rid Pennsylvania of food insecurity positively impacts the lives of so many.”
Philabundance has a fleet of 18 trucks, 5 vans, and 8 other company vehicles which travel over 250,000 miles each year. The partnership and support of The Energy Transfer/Sunoco Foundation has enabled Philabundance to expand its ability to source food, and provide emergency food assistance to more residents, including seniors and children.
