November 30th will be our seventh annual event supporting Philabundance, the region's largest hunger relief organization. Philabundance provides food to 90,000 individuals each week via neighborhood distribution programs and 350-member agencies including food pantries, shelters, and emergency kitchens in the Delaware Valley.
One in five people in the Philadelphia area face hunger. Our volunteer work will take place in Philabundance's Hunger Relief Center near the Philadelphia Sports Complex in South Philadelphia. The Center is the main distribution center for the organization's sorting and packing operation to support supplemental and emergency food items. Our work is in a safe and secure area and involves sorting and packaging cans and boxes of groceries and packaged meats. The work is light-weight, easy, and rewarding.
COVID-19 Notice: The health and safety of our volunteers are our first priority, so we are taking all reasonable precautions and preventative measures during volunteer shifts to ensure that we can all limit exposure to and spread of the COVID-19 virus.
