Driving Hunger Away During Ramadan

May 6 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Driving Hunger Away During Ramadan

Senator Street, Philabundance and Shoprite are hosting a 30-day food drive during Ramadan which will feed 6000 people. 

The Driving Hunger Away During Ramadan initiative will feed 200 people a day at community spaces throughout Philadelphia for 30 days from the beginning of Ramadan on April 13 to May 12. Pandemic related unemployment has been disproportionately higher among low-income communities. Food insecurity in the Philadelphia region rose sharply due to the pandemic, with many of Philabundance’s agencies reporting a 60 percent increase in the number of clients they serve.  

Other key sponsors for this initiative include Shoprite Owned & Operated by the Brown’s Family, Keystone First, Philadelphia Ramadan & Eid Fund, Aetna, Dedicated Senior Medical Center, and Temple University Office of Community Affairs.

Participants may contact Senator Street’s District office at 215-227-6161 or register below:
