Stopping Hunger One Food Drive at a Time…

“… the first essential component of social justice is adequate food for all mankind. Food is the moral right of all who are born into this world.” -Norman Borlaug

The people living in the neighborhood surrounding N. Broad Street in Philadelphia are hungry, and the folks at the Philippian Baptist Church know that better than anyone.

Pastor Edward Perrine and members of his congregation hold a monthly food drive at the church, but with recent cutbacks to their supplies, they wonder if it’s going to be enough to keep food on the plates of their neighbors.

During the month of March, La Salle’s Explore Nutrition project teamed up with the church to supply food ranging from fresh fruits and vegetables to canned goods to the neighborhood surrounding the church.
