White and Williams Philadelphia Office Supports Hungry Local Children
White and Williams' Philadelphia Office held a food drive to support local children who face hunger during the summer months. Working closely with Philabundance, lawyers and staff collected canned goods, raised money through a virtual food drive, and spent time packaging snacks for local distribution centers. Ultimately, the office came together to donate more than 500 pounds of food, including 50 snack packs, as well as funds to provide more than 8,500 meals to help fight hunger.
According to Philabundance, 300,000 children in the Greater Philadelphia area lose their free school meals during the summer. The organization's KidBites LunchBox Program aims to help fill this meal gap by offering free and nutritious meals for kids at different locations across Pennsylvania and New Jersey. For two weeks, lawyers and staff collected tuna fish, canned fruits and canned vegetables, identified as high-priority items needed to serve these meals, as well as raised money to support the LunchBox Program and local children in need.
The initiative culminated with firm volunteers packaging food purchased from Fare and Square Grocery Store, partner of Philabundance, into snack packs to be provided to children at local distribution centers. This packing event served the dual purpose of contributing healthy snacks to local children as well as supporting the nation's first full-service non-profit grocery store.
