3 year commitment
Food banks and food pantries play a key role in meeting the nutritional needs of low-income children and families, who have less access to nutritious, affordable foods and are disproportionately impacted by obesity and diet-related disease. Our food bank partners make sure that times of sacrifice don’t also mean sacrificing good health.
Philabundance is the largest hunger relief organization in the Delaware Valley, where one in five people are food insecure. As our partner, Philabundance commits to being a place where families in need can find nutritious choices. Over the next three years, Philabundance promises to evaluate the nutritional quality of the food it distributes to the 360,000 people in its service area, decreasing the amount of food and beverages with minimal nutritional value.
Understanding the importance of continued health and wellness for the people it serves, it will also develop nutritional guidelines, build a culture of health and wellness, and ensure consistent access to nutrition expertise to guide in all of its decision-making.
We are proud to work with an organization making such a positive impact on hunger and nutrition in the Philadelphia area.
Low-income people are at increased risk for both food insecurity and obesity
