The Mitzvah Food Project was piloted in 1996 to alleviate hunger and malnutrition among at-risk families in the Greater Philadelphia region.
With broad-based support from the region's Jewish community and hunger relief agencies, the Food Project, which initially distributed food through a single community site, has expanded its geographic reach throughout Philadelphia and into the region's lower-income suburban neighborhoods.
In the past year we have had 19% increase in clients visiting our food pantries.
We need additional volunteer support at a majority of our pantry locations. Any help you can provide would be a great service to individuals and families in need!
