Philabundance Warehouse Help

What we'll be doing:

We will work together to sort and pack food that gets distributed to their programs and our network of almost 500 food cupboards, emergency kitchens, and shelters. They help to feed approximately 65,000 people every week through our agencies, and they can’t distribute that much food without dedicated teams of volunteers.

What you should know

We will be working in a warehouse - closed toed shoes are mandatory.

Where to meet

We will meet in the room at the end of the lobby.

Organization: Philabundance

Philabundance was created in 1984 with the simple belief that no man, woman or child should go hungry. Our growth and eventual integration with the Philadelphia Food Bank in 2005 has made us the region’s largest hunger relief organization. We are now able to address hunger through direct service programs and a network of 500 member agencies, as well as contribute to a broad spectrum of social services through food cupboards, emergency kitchens, shelters, daycare and senior centers and beyond.

 

After we finish we will head to

Chickie and Petes for some good food and drinks :)

    Thank u Raheem, for inviting us to this opportunity to serve and become better aware of the hunger issues here. The workers were great and the team effort to complete the job was superb! Those tuna cans were coming faster than my hands could move, and the ladies on either side of me were there helping me! An awesome experience!
