Retail Food Rescue
From May, 2018 through December, 2018, MAHN rescued and distributed more than 48,000 lbs. of retail grocer product to fifteen local food pantries in the startup phase of its food rescue program.
With the help of a refrigerated van awarded by Philabundance, our door to door service relieves the food pantry of all transportation and donor relationship responsibilities typically associated with food rescue. The program is expected to generate more than 100,000 lbs. of nutritious product for Montgomery County's emergency food system per year.
Peer Learning Circles
We believe that knowledge is power and host informational meetings to support continued member learning. These gatherings of food pantry leadership and staff provide:
Opportunity to learn about best practices from peers and experts in the field
A communal thinking space where service providers
are encouraged to share ideas, discuss challenges, and build relationships
Pathways to meet community partners offering services that enhance food pantry programs
