Ongoing Food Pantry at Simon Gratz H.S.

Verified Non-Profit

Verified Non-Profit

The Description

Our school, Simon Gratz Mastery Charter High School, is a Renaissance neighborhood high school in North Philadelphia.   We serve the needs of students and community members in our catchment zone.  The zip codes we serve have some of the lowest net-income households in the country- our families deserve access to food and also humane treatment and choice when collecting food items.  

We are partnering with food distributors and other non-profit organizations to provide meals, preserved goods, and household essentials to families in need within our neighborhood and school communities . While a portion of the items are donated from non-profit organizations, we need at least $1000 per month in order to sustain this effort and supplement donations with purchased food items.  If we reach our goal, we will be able to provide a monthly food drive for the next year.

We and our school and neighborhood community are so grateful for any amount you can donate!

Back Up Plan

If we are unable to reach our $10,000 goal, we will continue to host the food drive for as many months as we can financially sustain.  The more money that we raise up front, the longer we can guarantee this food pantry as a resource to our community.
