Feed the Children was in Philadelphia this week, and their generous donations of clothing, fresh fruit, and other healthy foods brought smiles to the faces of hundreds of families in need.

The charity partnered with more than a dozen agencies to bring the event to the parking lot of Deliverance Evangelistic Church in North Philadelphia.  One of the partners was Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins.  Jenkins brought his foundation with him to aid in servicing the public, something he had wanted to do since he saw Feed the Children at work in New Orleans in the past.  He said he couldn’t wait to perform the same good deeds in Philadelphia.

“I got to see the impact first hand,” said Jenkins.  “And I know that it doesn’t take too many resources – something we can do rather quickly, and just with the help of a few partners to really know it out. And I think it came together really fast and a lot of people jumped on board to help us.”

Jenkins also brought along his fraternity, Omega Psi Phi, to help pass out items and meals.  “One of the main missions of Omega Psi Phi is service to the community,” explained Andrew Ray, Jenkins’ fraternity brother.  “And to be a part of this gathering where we are providing services on multiple levels, that’s one thing we know our community needs.”

Many families who benefited from the event said they were in appreciation of Feed the Children’s charity work.

“It’s very valuable and important for the people who are unemployed,” said Warren Young who attended the event with his daughters.  “People who just need the extra food and can’t afford to pay for the extra personal care and needs.”

“It touches my heart. It’s just beautiful, that’s all. I love it,” said Barbara Giles, another attendee.

The Coalition Against Hunger reported that nearly one in four people in Philadelphia are impoverished.  With statistics such as these in existence, Feed the Children aims to feed as many families who are in need as possible.
