Feeding The Community Expansion

$270 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 22 months
Community Solutions CDC is a nonprofit organization whose mission is "to improve the lives of West Philadelphia one block at a time ." We develop and implement numerous programs to aid in the social and economic redevelopment of our community.

One of our signature initiatives is our Feeding the Community program. Through gracious donations from our various grocery partners, we provide fresh groceries to the residents of the community. To date, we've provided fresh , healthy groceries to over 3,000 families (9 months) along with 2 elementary schools and a daycare. With word of our program spreading, more requests for donations have begun to come in, however, we face capacity issues which are hindering our fulfillment of these. In order to accommodate these requests without straining our already thin budget (we receive ZERO government funding), we are fundraising to purchase a commercial deep freezer, refrigerator and a UHaul truck that will be modified with a refrigeration unit. Acquiring these items will allow Community Solutions to help more residents have access to the healthy food options available.
