Review for Share Food Program Inc, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization is a treasure in the Philadelphia region. It has a unique model of food distribution and community empowerment that many organizations can learn from. Only managed by a handful of staff, some of SHARE's strengths are the staff's dedication and ability to mobilize hundreds of volunteers each month to assemble food packages.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the numbers they serve, which reaches beyond Philadelphia to MD, DE, NY, and the rest of PA.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that the staff is devoted to the community and that their work comes from a labor of love.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

a cross-section of the Philadelphia community -- elders, young people, professionals, corporate employees, church-goers, etc.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

address the roots of the hunger problem, broadly speaking. In the immediate sense, it could probably update their facilities with improved equipment and better incorporate technology into their everyday operations.

Ways to make it better...

The packaging system were a bit organized within the warehouse. Because of the bulk of food and the pace that it's sent to the community, establishing a strict organization of goods seems to have fallen on the wayside.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

over-reliance on one source of funding.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
