Philabundance 'PHLB' was created in 1984 with the simple belief that no man, woman or child should go hungry. Our growth and eventual integration with the Philadelphia Food Bank in 2005 has made us the region's largest hunger relief organization. We are now able to address hunger through direct service programs and a network of 500 member agencies, as well as contribute to a broad spectrum of social services through food cupboards, emergency kitchens, shelters, daycare and senior centers and beyond.

Employees of Philabundance are in the special position of ensuring that needy men, women and children will eat nutritious meals. If we do our jobs well, more people will eat well. This is reflected in our Core Values: Leadership through excellence, innovation, and accountability.

Philabundance employees are selected for their positions based not just on their job skills, but also on their commitment to the work we do. This combination means that each of us, working together, do all that we can to help eliminate hunger in our community.
