VIP Project

Philadelphia’s anti-hunger community is working smarter by working together because we know there is----Victory in Partnership!

The Victory in Partnership (VIP) Project networks food pantries and soup kitchens within Philadelphia so they can coordinate resources. Participating food pantries and soup kitchens come together for monthly workshops to help them improve their program. VIP members are also offered mentoring opportunities that train them in finding funding and other leadership skills. To visit a meeting or become a VIP member, please call Derek Felton at 215-888-4594.
