December 24, 2013

The Mitzvah Food Project was piloted in 1996 to alleviate hunger and malnutrition among at-risk families in the Greater Phila­delphia region. Currently, the Mitzvah Food Project’s hun­ger relief program serves seniors and families through five sites located in Center City, Northeast Philadelphia, Wynnewood, Bensalem and ­Elk­ins Park.
Over the past six months, the demand for these services have increased and volunteers are needed to assist with walk-in clients, pack food and/or serve as drivers.
