Philabundance does not distribute food to the public directly from our warehouses or Philabundance Community Kitchen. We work with over 350 community partners in our nine-county service area through Philadelphia and South Jersey and distribute our produce through these partners. To find a community partner closest to you and access food, please visit our Find Food Map, call the WhyHunger Hotline at 1(800)-548-6479, or text the WhyHunger Hotline with your zip code.

Philabundance works with over 350 community partners partners in 9 counties throughout Pennsylvania and South Jersey to provide food to people who need it. In addition to food distribution, we strive to reduce food waste, increase access to nutritious meals, and tackle the root causes of hunger through programs such as the Philabundance Community Kitchen.

Philabundance programs serve the community on a self-declared basis, meaning there are no requirements to access food. You may, however, be asked to provide an ID when receiving food. Additionally, the CSFP or senior box program requires seniors to be at least 60 years-old and at or below 130% of the poverty line.
Philabundance does not sell food or re-sell donated food. As a member of the Feeding America national food bank network, Philabundance may ask member agencies to contribute a “shared maintenance fee” to cover a small portion of the operating costs incurred securing and distributing some food. This fee averages between 18 and 19¢ per pound if applied. By law, clients cannot be charged for food that has been donated for hunger relief. Philabundance monitors its community partners to ensure this never happens. If you are asked to pay for food, or suspect someone is charging, please let us know by contacting 215-339-0900.
Philabundance serves five counties in PA: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia, and four counties in NJ: Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem.
The people we serve include individuals, families, children, students, seniors, and everyone in between. Some may be housing insecure, while others own a home and work full time but have trouble making ends meet. Hunger hits every zip code and Philabundance will never discriminate against those seeking our services.
Philabundance acquires much of its food through generous donations from groups like the Philadelphia Wholesale Produce Market, national and local food manufacturers, wholesalers, local retailers, brokers, food distributors,farmers, and more.
We also purchase bulk quantities of food at wholesale prices to help supplement donated product, which is made possible through generous financial donations from both individuals and corporations. Additionally, Philabundance receives food through food drives held by individuals, corporations, schools and other organizations. Find out more about donating food, donating funds or hosting a food drive.
When food arrives at our warehouses, it is inspected, sorted, and, if necessary, repacked for distribution by our staff and volunteers. Sign up for a volunteer shift today!
