FREEDOM FROM HUNGER FOOD DRIVE
September 16 – September 30
Pantry Coalitions Across Montgomery County
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.
