Join the Mitzvah Food Program's mission to provide access to nutritious food and alleviate hunger and malnutrition among at-risk families in the Greater Philadelphia region. Our state of the art food pantry offers participants an opportunity to "shop" from our on-site pantry using an innovative, healthy-food-incentivized online platform.

We are in need of 5 delivery drivers to pick up parcels from our headquarters on Jamison Avenue and deliver them to some of our home-bound clients. We run delivery service twice per month (1st and 3rd weeks) on Thursdays and Fridays. Volunteer Delivery Drivers would have the opportunity to pick up their deliveries on Thursday or Friday starting at 8:45am until 5:00pm (Thurs.) and ending at 3:00pm (Fridays). (Additional windows for deliveries are available on an as-needed basis).

We are looking for dependable, responsible volunteers who want to make a difference in the community one delivery at a time. Prospective volunteers who can participate once or twice (preferred) per month are encouraged to apply as well as prospective volunteers whose availability is sparse (ie. once every 2 months, when possible, etc.). Must have a valid drivers license, and an operational motor vehicle. Current background check paperwork preferred.

Mission Statement

The Mitzvah Food Program was piloted in 1996 to alleviate hunger and malnutrition among at-risk families in the Greater Philadelphia region.

Description

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.
