SEPTA / Philabundance Food Drive

SEPTA and Philabundance are teaming up for the 4th annual Stop Hunger at Your Station food drive.

Customers can also drop off donations of canned and boxed goods in marked barrels at
45 designated locations throughout the transit system (a list of locations can be found at www.septa.org/events/philabundance.html). CCT customers wishing to participate will be able to give their canned good contributions to their vehicle operator. Philabundance is especially in need of:
• Canned or shelf stabilized tuna
• Canned pasta
• Canned beef ravioli
• Creamy peanut butter (plastic containers only, please)
• Jelly (plastic containers only, please)
• Cereal
• Oatmeal
The public can make a donation to Philabundance online to help feed neighbors in need.  Any monetary contribution will count toward the total collected through the SEPTA 2012 campaign. In 2011, SEPTA’s customers and employees contributed almost 17.8 tons of food.

Philabundance is the largest hunger-relief organization in the Delaware Valley, serving nine counties and feeding 65,000 people every week. In 2011, Philabundance distributed 19 million pounds of food in its service area and an additional two million pounds to other area food banks.
