Philabundance is the region’s largest food rescue organization. In fiscal 2006, we distributed 26 million pounds of food. We serve low income residents at risk of hunger and malnutrition, of which 23% are children and 16% are senior citizens.

Philabundance distributes food through a network of more than 600 member agencies throughout the Delaware Valley. These agencies include food cupboards, neighborhood distributions, shelters, emergency kitchens and various social service agencies with special programs such as daycares and senior centers.

The agencies serve people in need in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties in PA, and in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Mercer and Salem counties in NJ.

Currently, Philabundance distributes food to member agencies through the following distribution systems:

*Orders for items on the weekly Philabundance Food Bank menu that can be delivered or picked up at the Berks location.

*Items picked up from the Walk Through shopping area at the Berks location.
*Produce delivered weekly.
*Produce picked up from local hub distributions.

Member agencies pay shared maintenance as well as delivery fees for the food they receive from the Food Bank. Agencies may also apply for the Produce Program to either receive a weekly delivery or come to a produce hub distribution; the Produce Program is free and agencies that apply are added to a waitlist for the next available space.

In 2005, Philabundance integrated with the Philadelphia Food Bank to become the region's largest nonprofit hunger relief organization. Today, Philabundance offers a full plate of services to Delaware Valley residents at risk of chronic hunger and malnutrition.

Philabundance provides food if and when a disaster strikes. During the Hurricane Katrina aftermath Philabundance was the fourth largest provider of food to the Gulf.
