 Philabundance Community Food Center

Join the Philabundance team by volunteering at the Community Food Center (CFC), a choice food pantry in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Community Service (MOCS) and St. Joe’s University. Located in the basement of the Lillian Marrero branch of the library at 601 W. Lehigh Avenue, Community Food Center customers choose what they like from a wide variety of (free) items, including dry goods, refrigerated and frozen items, fresh dairy, produce and bread. The CFC is open to shoppers four days a week, including weekend hours, to allow maximum accessibility to the community. Volunteers are needed Tues-Sat for a variety of tasks including unloading orders, stocking the shelves, greeting, registering and checking-in customers and data entry. Groups and individual volunteers are both welcome. Those interested in volunteering should contact Tracey at or (215) 229-2221 ext. 4.
