Valley Forge Freedom from Hunger Food Drive
Coronavirus Support

The Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board (VFTCB) will be collecting monetary donations for the sixth annual Valley Forge Freedom from Hunger Food Drive from September 1-30. Due to COVID-19, this year’s drive will take place solely online.

The VFTCB is again partnering with the MontCo Anti-Hunger Network (MAHN) – a coalition of hunger relief organizations working together to make healthy foods available to all communities in Montgomery County.

Donations benefit MAHN and its mission to help feed the less fortunate in Montgomery County. Each year, the goal has increased for donations. The 2020 goal is 15,000 pounds of food. Since the Freedom from Hunger Food Drive began in 2015, the VFTCB has collected more than 25,000 pounds of food to feed the hungry in Montgomery County.


In place of a physical donation, monetary contributions are accepted and appreciated. Monetary donations are handled by the MontCo Anti-Hunger Network (MAHN). MAHN will use the funds to purchase food to feed Montgomery County residents in need.


The Valley Forge Freedom from Hunger Food Drive was created as a farewell "gift" to Pope Francis in 2015 when the Pontiff stayed in Montgomery County at the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary during the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia. Now in its sixth year, the drive continues to support the community that the tourism board diligently promotes to visitors across the nation and around the world.
