Pamela Rainey Lawler founded the nonprofit from her home in Roxborough and has been the organization’s face and fiercest proponent ever since.
Philabundance provides food to 90,000 individuals each week and through our direct neighborhood distributions programs and network of 350 member agencies including food pantries, shelters and emergency kitchens in the Delaware Valley. There is also something called The Mobile Pantry, it provides an experience similar to shopping at a farmer’s market or grocery store, but all items are free to participants, and help encourage healthy eating by providing fresh produce, and other items, such as protein, dairy and grocery products.
Philabundance was created in 1984 with the simple belief that no man, woman or child should go hungry. We seek to drive hunger from our communities today and end hunger forever.

There are three quarters of a million people in our service area who face hunger every day. Their stories are as diverse as the nine counties served by Philabundance: working families hit hard by the recession, women and children, seniors trying to make ends meet. The one thing they have in common is being part of a food system that desperately needs additional support.
