Fairless Hills Nonprofit Aims to Distribute 100,000 Meals to ‘Knock Out Hunger’
A nonprofit in Bucks County is working to fight hunger in the area through a program that would feed those in need. Damon C. Williams wrote about the program for the Bucks County Courier Times.
United Way of Bucks County, headquartered at 413 Hood Boulevard in Fairless Hills, is aiming to distribute 100,000 meals in the area as a part of their annual “Knock Out Hunger” food drive program. With approximately 45,000 local residents dealing with food insecurity, the initiative is a way to help those facing hard times.
“Over and above, we want to bring light to the issue of food insecurity,” said Tim Philpot, the impact director for health for the United Way of Bucks County.
“Bucks is a fairly wealthy county and residents may not appreciate that we have thousands of residents that are food insecure, and who are not sure where their next meal is coming from.”
