The SHARE Food Program is a nonprofit organization serving a regional network of community organizations engaged in food distribution, education, and advocacy. SHARE promotes healthy living by providing affordable wholesome food to those willing to contribute through volunteerism. “Do good, feel good, eat good.” A smart idea that brings community and healthy food together
SHARE supplies 550 Philadelphia County food pantries that provide food to people living in households with incomes of 185 percent of the poverty level or less. Among our recipients are 88,765 children, 97,128 adults and 37,328 seniors. In addition SHARE also operates a discount food co-op open to anyone who is doing two hours or more of any volunteer work a month. For $20 dollars, a basic SHARE package includes frozen meats, fresh produce and assorted shelf stable items. Co-op food is cheaper than food from grocery stores and SHARE accepts EBT and Farmers' Market Nutrition Checks.
