We always try to bring awareness to some great local charity organizations. Philabundance, is one of them. Based in Philadelphia PA, They were created in 1984 with the simple belief that no man, woman or child should go hungry. They seek to drive hunger from their communities today and end hunger forever. There are three quarters of a million people in their service area who face hunger every day. Their stories are as diverse as the nine surrounding counties served by Philabundance – working families hit hard by the recession, women and children, seniors trying to make ends meet. To learn more facts about senior hunger issues, the National Council for Aging Care has a good reference article – The Facts Behind Senior Hunger which addresses some of the causes, complications, and cures for senior food insecurity. They are part of a food system that desperately needs additional support. Philabundance provides food to approximately 90,000 people per week – of which 30% are children and 15% are senior citizens – through a network of nearly 350 member agencies including food cupboards, shelters, emergency kitchens and more.
