On Saturday, June 18, 2016, Connie Lojewski, along with co-workers from the Philadelphia office, volunteered at Share, packing boxes of food to be delivered to senior citizens. Share first opened in 1986, part of a national network of Shares dedicated to expanding community access to wholesome, affordable food. Since that time, Share has evolved into a vibrant, high-impact organization, recognized for their strong leadership role in reducing regional hunger and expanding access to nutritious, affordable food.
Last year, Share brought 24.6 million pounds of emergency food relief to low-income Philadelphia residents facing hunger. Each day, Share manages complex food distribution operations, to bring a steady, reliable stream of food relief to more than 505 volunteer-led food cupboards. Last year, Share’s food relief helped an average of 607,513 low-income individuals each month. This figure has increased 31.4% in just the past four years.
