    Thumbs up Fresh produce for those who need it limited areas in PA, NJ

    Fresh produce for those who need it limited areas in PA, NJ

    Fresh for All will be expanded as part of Philabundance’s Emergency Relief Initiative. The program will double from 6 to 12 sites by the end of the year. Stay tuned for new locations in South jersey, Philadelphia and the suburbs of Philadelphia as they open.

    Fresh For All is a program that puts good quality, fresh produce into the hands of those who need it. The cost of fresh fruits and vegetables is rising, which means these healthy foods are the first to get cut when money is tight.
    Philabundance estimates that there are approximately 900,000 people in the Delaware Valley that may need help with food. Through our 600+ agency network, food is distributed to approximately 65,000 people every week. The current need greatly exceeds the capacity of the existing network. In response, Philabundance is planning new and innovative ways of distributing more food to people in need. Fresh For All is the first step on this path.

    Fresh For All locations are selected based on need and may be in partnership with an area agency or business. The Fresh For All truck returns on the same day and time each week to 6 select locations, which range from space shared by an area organization to simply a parking lot. Volunteers assist with running the distributions.
