Valley Forge Freedom from Hunger Food Drive

The Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board (VFTCB) will be collecting food for the fourth annual Valley Forge Freedom from Hunger Food Drive from September 16-30. 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.

MAKE A MONETARY DONATION

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.

ABOUT FREEDOM FROM HUNGER

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 fourth year, the drive continues to support the community that the tourism board diligently promotes to visitors across the nation and around the world.

The VFTCB has increased its goal for donations every year since the drive began and to date has collected over 9,000 pounds of food to feed the hungry in Montgomery County. This year, the VFTCB has set an ambitious goal of collecting 5,000 pounds of food during the food drive, which runs from September 16-30.
