Farm to Pantry

Last week, our staff took a morning off from work. We spent Wednesday morning harvesting beets, carrots and collard greens at Carversville Farm Foundation in Bucks County with our friends from Rolling Harvest Food Rescue. The fruits (vegetables) of our labor were then distributed to the Green Light Pantries and other emergency food providers in the region. 


The Philadelphia Eagles season got underway last night but perhaps their best moment on the field came before the game.

Prior to kickoff, The Eagles and ACME Markets announced that they raised 99,351 pounds of healthy food this April through their Teaming Up to Kick Hunger campaign to benefit local food pantries

This marked the third year of the in-store campaign, which has now raised more than 400,000 pounds of food in total to help kick hunger.
