Full Plate Society Spotlight: Hannah Kastenbaum

In her day job, Hannah Kastenbaum puts her passion to work each and every day: using her medical degree to help others. As an associate medical examiner for the City of Philadelphia’s Medical Examiner Office, Kastenbaum provides an important service to grieving families, public health, and the criminal justice process. It’s that same emphasis on improving the lives of others that she brings with her as a Philabundance volunteer.

“I can only do what I can as one person, but I think that if you have the time, effort, and ability to share, then you should do that because everyone isn’t as fortunate,” she says.

As a member of our Full Plate Society (FPS), Kastenbaum has participated in several Donor Volunteer Nights at the Philabundance warehouse, an opportunity to give back while connecting with fellow FPS members over food (provided by Philabundance Community Kitchen) and perfectly curated playlists that make packing quick and easy.

“Work keeps me busy, but I also have free time to give, so I give it when I find the opportunity,” she says. “Volunteering is a great way to meet like-minded individuals, and more importantly, it’s clear that the work Philabundance is doing is needed, vital, and important.”
