Valley Forge Freedom from Hunger Fall Drive

The Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board (VFTCB) is partnering with the MontCo Anti-Hunger Network (MAHN) September through October for the tenth annual Freedom From Hunger Drive.

Before the fall drive kicks off, bartaco in King of Prussia will be officially supporting Freedom From Hunger from July 24-Sept. 2, 2024 by donating $1 from every #givingtaco sold during that time frame.

Then, Workhorse Brewing Company will participate in the fall drive again by contributing $1 for every Oktoberfest draft sold on Fridays September through October.

By supporting the Freedom From Hunger campaign, you enable us to purchase high-quality and high-demand food items. Your support will assist in not only the purchasing of food, but also go towards the crucial distribution needs that helps MAHN support our network across the county, bridging gaps in emergency food access.

All proceeds support the MontCo Anti-Hunger Network.

MAHN provides resources to almost 70 free meal providers that feed thousands of individuals who are food insecure in Montco.

Per, for every dollar donated, seven meals – or 12 pounds of food – can be provided by using money to buy food in bulk to give to families in need. Monetary donations are most impactful to aid with purchasing high-demand and much-needed items, including for personal care, such as: toothpaste/toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, diapers, underwear, t-shirts, etc.

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 highly needed requested food items like eggs, poultry, and ground beef to feed Montgomery County residents in need.

About Freedom from Hunger

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