Retail Food Rescue
In the program's first year of operation, (May 2018 through April 2019), MAHN has become a valued source of free and nutritious food by rescuing and distributing more than 101,000 lbs. of retail grocer product to twenty food pantries.
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 that often limit or altogether prohibit their engagement in retail food rescue.
Peer Learning Circles
We believe that knowledge is the path to excellent consumer service 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
MAHN’s membership is divided into 5 coalition regions. Each convenes regularly for peer to peer idea exchange and
discussion around operational challenges. Meetings create opportunity to build relationships and look at poverty from a higher, community level perspective
