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.
