SNAP Updates

We are closely tracking what is happening with SNAP and other nutrition programs. SNAP benefits for February were disbursed to participants early and it is unclear if March benefits will be available if the shutdown continues.

As the nation’s largest anti-hunger program, if SNAP benefits are impacted by the shutdown it will have devastating consequences on the over 650,000 people who rely on SNAP in our area.

Stay updated on SNAP information by heading to our blog post.

FAQs

I am affected by the shutdown and cannot access the South Philly Distribution.

Anyone in need of food assistance can call the WHY Hunger Hotline at 1-800-5-HUNGRY for immediate assistance or access one of our 350+ agencies for food. You can find an agency location nearest you by using our Find Food Map. 

How can I help those who are impacted by the shutdown?

One way to directly help those impacted is by donating or raising funds so that Philabundance can purchase fresh produce and other needed items to supply the Emergency Market for federal workers. Another way to help is by hosting a food drive and collecting non-perishable food items to donate. Any questions about food drives or raising funds can be directed to Olivia Edwards at oedwards@philabundance.org 

Is there a place I can donate money to assist federal workers in need? 

Yes. You may donate directly on our website or by visiting our fundraising page on Facebook.

Do you have a flyer I can hand out or post to social media advertising the Emergency Market?

Yes, you can download the flyer here!
