Valley Forge Freedom from Hunger Food Drive
Coronavirus Support

Help the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board (VFTCB) keep hungry kids fed during the school shutdown! Many kids enrolled in the federal lunch program are getting their most nutritious meal of the day at school. When schools are closed, the risk that they go hungry increases dramatically. Your donation will help keep them fed through Montgomery County's food pantry network.

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.

Since the Freedom from Hunger Food Drive began in 2015, the VFTCB has collected over 25,000 pounds of food to feed the hungry in Montgomery County.


In place of a physical donation, monetary contributions are also 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 in 2015 when Pope Francis stayed in Montgomery County at the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary during the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia. The Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board established the food drive as the County’s farewell “gift” to the Pontiff. Now in its fifth year, the drive continues to support the community that the tourism board diligently promotes to visitors across the nation and around the world.
