Supply Chain Alliance Supports Philabundance
Legacy Foodservice Alliance, of Richmond, VA, collaborated with Distributor and Supplier Members to make a contribution to Philabundance at Legacy’s 10th Anniversary Marketplace in Philadelphia. The Marketplace is Legacy’s buying and business conference that takes place in the Spring and Fall of each year.
Callie Redford, VP Member Development stated, “Hunger is a nationwide concern, affecting people at every stage of life. Being in foodservice and going back to our roots in Philadelphia, it was only logical for us to partner with a great cause that is doing real work to help the community.”
Legacy’s non-profit entity, Legacy Helping Hands matched all monetary contributions from individuals and companies. Legacy Supplier Members also donated heaping pallets of non-perishable product, choosing to make sure those items went to those in need, and not to the landfill. “The Members of Legacy Foodservice Alliance were excited to participate in the good utilization of products. We’ve done this sporadically before, but plan on making this a staple of all Legacy Marketplaces going forward,” Redford added.
Philabundance is the Delaware Valley’s largest hunger relief organization, serving more than 90,000 people each week in nine counties in PA and Southern NJ. Of those served, 30 percent are children, 16 percent are seniors, and adults served include college students, families and the working class. Philabundance rescues, purchases and accepts donated food, and distributed 26 million pounds in 2018 through its own programs and a network of 350 partner agencies. A one dollar donation provides two meals. To make a contribution or learn more, go to Philabundance.org.
