VIP Project

The Victory in Partnership (VIP) Project supports food pantries in the Philadelphia area by:

  • Providing them with funding, equipment, workshops, technology, and other tools to improve their programs.
  • Networking them within their communities, so they can work together to fight hunger. Coordinators of VIP food pantries and soup kitchens meet monthly to discuss how to better serve their communities. 

Each month, VIP Meetings focus on a different topic and often features expert guest speakers. In addition, these meetings provide an opportunity for those on the front lines in the fight against hunger to share best practices and offer encouragement to one another.

Do you run a food pantry or soup kitchen and want to participate in our VIP Project? Email or call 215-430-0555 to learn more!


Philadelphia's anti-hunger community is working smarter by working together because we know there is victory in partnership!
