The Mitzvah Food Program Lower Bucks County food pantry is seeking volunteers to assist with pantry hours on Tuesdays from 3:30 - 5 pm. These pantry hours are specifically for Bucks County families who need some help putting healthy food on their dining room tables.
The pantry is every Tuesday and we help about 50 families.
We are located at Congregation Tifereth Israel in Bensalem.
Call or email Phil Holtje at 215-832-0815 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or to volunteer! The timing works perfectly for students needing volunteer hours for high school graduation, Bar / Bat Mitzvah projects, or adults whose work will let them leave early and dedicate the end of their day to community volunteer projects. Retired folks who are looking to give back to the community are welcome too!
About Mitzvah Food Program, Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia
2100 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103, US
The mission of the Mitzvah Food Program is to provide food and basic staples in a caring and dignified manner community members who are in need, and to educate and advocate on their behalf. Our five pantries distribute nutritious food to all who are in need, regardless of race, income, gender, age or religion.
The Mitzvah Food Program was piloted in 1996 to alleviate hunger and malnutrition among at-risk families in the Greater Philadelphia region.
With broad-based support from the region’s Jewish community and hunger relief agencies, the Mitzvah Food Program, which initially distributed food through a single community site, has expanded its geographic reach throughout Philadelphia and into the region’s lower-income suburban neighborhoods.
The Mitzvah Food Program benefits from both the support of an advisory committee made up of active community members, local nutritionists, and site leaders and a team of dedicated volunteers that keep our pantries and deliveries running smoothly. We also work with local and state hunger relief organizations, synagogues, and community organizations to acquire low-cost food staples and with volunteer groups throughout the region to organize food drives.
During 2019-2020, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Mitzvah Food Program distributed 938,020 pounds of food to 8,227 clients.
