Where to Find Free Nutritious Food During COVID-19
The City also announced today that additional food distribution sites will open tomorrow on Thursday, April 2, bringing the total number of City-supported food sites to 40. At these sites, residents of all ages can pick up a box of food (one box per household) on Mondays and Thursdays between 10 a.m. and noon. Residents do not have to present ID or proof of income.
An up-to-date list of sites is available on the City’s website [the link at the top of this Wikidelphia page]. All sites listed will offer free food on Thursday, April 2 from 10 a.m. to noon. This effort is a partnership with the community-based sites, as well as Philabundance and Share Food Program. The public is encouraged to verify sites by calling 311 or visiting phila.gov. On Monday, March 30—the first day of distribution—20 food sites distributed 4,000 boxes of food.
