Looking back on the summer, organizations across the Philadelphia region worked diligently to continue the fight against hunger, including Weaver’s Way Coop Food Justice Committee, Chestnut Hill/Mt. Airy. The committee put together a food drive that resulted in over 2,000 pounds of food donated to neighboring food cupboards including our partner Holy Cross Food Pantry, Mt. Airy. Items donated included canned goods, fresh produce, coffee, tea, and household items. Additionally, over $1200 was raised for Holy Cross, money that would allow the pantry to offer fresh produce all summer long.
NDS Community Food Program is thankful for the generosity of Weaver’s Way. It is people and organizations like them that help make a difference in the lives of those in need, especially during the summertime when donations are down and school is out of session.
