Minutes, March 22

This Saturday we are working with Philabundance. We will meet at Parrish Circle at 8am, and be back by around 11:30.

Here is more info about the Center we will be working at:

"The Community Food Center (CFC) is a choice food pantry in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Community Service (MOCS) and St. Joe’s University. At the Community Food Center, customers choose what they like from a wide variety of (free) items, including dry goods, refrigerated and frozen items, fresh dairy, produce and bread. The Community Food Center is different from traditional food pantries; traditionally, pantries will give out prepared bags or boxes to an individual once a month. The box/bag will contain foods that are chosen by the pantry without regard for an individual’s religious or dietary concerns. Often, traditional pantries will have many restrictions on who can receive food assistance based on zip code or income requirements, requiring clients to provide documentation. We are excited to be the first choice food pantry in Philadelphia and showcase a choice model focused on customer service and providing easy access for people to receive assistance."
