"In 1984 Philabundance was founded by an idealist named Pamela Rainey Lawler who saw perfectly good food going to waste, and, at the same time, saw people going hungry. What started out as a small food rescue organization operating out of a Subaru, 30+ years later, is an innovative, impactful and collaborative organization distributing more than 24 million pounds of food a year to those in need. Philabundance is a proud member of Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks leading the fight against hunger in the United States."
Food Bank of South Jersey
"The Food Bank of South Jersey’s humble beginnings in Camden, New Jersey is a reinforcement of what happens when ordinary citizens, driven by compassion and conviction, accomplish extraordinary feats. Founded in 1985 by 13 individuals with the belief that no one should go hungry, the Food Bank of South Jersey’s mission was birthed. This simple grassroots vision from one South Jersey city has stood the test of time to become a trusted beacon of hope feeding hundreds of thousands of food-insecure residents and renewing their faith in the kindness of humanity."
