Our amazing volunteers lead by Lillie Oliver, Food Distribution Coordinator
This is where it all began, several years ago when a North Philadelphia resident approached us and offered to help us distribute food just before Covid- 19 swept through the world.
Frontline Dads, Inc. came to lend a helping hand and distributed items as well.
Sorting and bagging is a big job that includes pushing and pulling skids of food.
Families line up by foot and car to receive food.
King Association Board Members sometimes come to give a helping hand.
