PHILADELPHIA, PA – Philabundance, Inc. receives a $500 donation from Woodforest Charitable Foundation.

There are almost a million people in the Delaware Valley who face hunger every day. Their stories are as diverse as the nine counties served by Philabundance: working families hit hard by the recession, women and children, seniors trying to make ends meet. The one thing they have in common is being part of a food system that desperately needs additional support.

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

“Woodforest Charitable Foudnation’s support helps us collect and distribute millions of pounds of food to help feed our hungry Delaware Valley neighbors,” said Marianne Lynch, Development Director of Philabundance, Inc. “On behalf of the people who have nutritious food to eat today because of Woodforest’s generosity, thanks again for your support and generosity.”
