I hope this issue of The Feed finds you happy and healthy as we all settle into a new year, one full of possibility for Philabundance and all those we serve.
It’s been nearly a year since life as we knew it changed with the onset of COVID-19. We have seen firsthand that the consequences of this pandemic do not discriminate and have left so many throughout our region in need of emergency food assistance.
While there is no doubt that a vaccine has put us on the road to recovery, for so many of our neighbors, it will take much longer to recover from the financial and economic hardship of the last twelve months.
But, thanks to the support of you — our loyal donors — we can ease that burden, and continue our work to drive hunger from our communities and end hunger for good.
On the pages that follow, you’ll find stories of the volunteers, donors and partners who embody our mission and inspire our work, reminding us all of the difference we can make together.
Despite its challenges, 2020 showed us what we’re capable of and was further proof that our collective impact can — and will —change lives.
On behalf of the entire Philabundance family, thank you for your continued partnership and tireless dedication.
Loree D. Jones
Chief Executive Officer
