How We Work

Our mission is to drive hunger from our communities today and end hunger for good. 

Our mission

Philabundance is a nonprofit food bank with a mission to drive hunger from our communities today and end hunger for good. We have a commitment to always serving our neighbors in need with dignity and respect, and take pride in our efforts to understand the wants and needs of our communities. This work wouldn’t be possible without a large network of supporters and partners who help us in fulfilling our mission.

Our Approach

Close to 500,000 people in our nine-county service area face food insecurity and aren’t sure where their next meal will come from. To combat this, Philabundance developed an innovative two-tiered approach, which consists of efforts that Relieve Hunger Now and End Hunger for Good.

By combining these efforts, we can provide our neighbors in need with necessary support today as we work to equip them with the resources and tools they need to build a more stable and independent future.

Our Network

Our communities are spread throughout Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, including five counties in PA: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia; and four counties in NJ: Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem. 

Throughout our service area, we work with more than 350 Community Partners, such as shelters, other nonprofits, emergency kitchens, senior centers, and schools, to ensure that we can reach every individual and family that is in need of our services. Philabundance relies on this network of partners, which we call our agency network, to distribute our food.

Philabundance also partners with statewide and nationwide organizations to increase collaboration, expand our reach, advocate for new policies, explore new initiatives, and much more! We are a proud member of both Feeding Pennsylvania and Feeding America.
