Hunger is not something that goes away when summer hits. In fact for many families with school-aged children feeding everyone can become much harder during the summer months when children who normally would receive a free or reduced price breakfast and lunch are now home for these meals. This is why it is so important for food drives to occur throughout the year and not just at the holidays.
For this reason employees at AmeriGas and UGI Corporate Offices in King Of Prussia, PA hold two food drives per year. One of these drives occurs in late fall right before the holiday season and the other happens in the spring when it is not so commonly done. This year’s spring drive was held the first week of May and employees brought in close to 1500 lbs. of food which was donated to Philabundance.
Philabundance is the Philadelphia region’s largest hunger relief organization, providing emergency food and access to services to approximately 900,000 people at risk of hunger and food insecurity in the Delaware Valley. They provide food to 75,000 people each week through their various programs and the agencies they assist. For more information visit: https://www.philabundance.org/.
