Philabundance was founded with the simple belief that no one should go hungry while healthy food goes to waste. Our mission is to drive hunger from our communities today and to end hunger for good. For more than 35 years, Philabundance has focused on providing emergency food to those in need to relieve hunger in five counties in PA and four counties in NJ. In addition to food distribution, we reduce food waste, increase access to nutritious meals, and tackle the root causes of hunger through programs such as the Philabundance Community Kitchen.
Like Philabundance, Good Pizza is an initiative that is also committed to helping our neighbors in need who experience food insecurity and hunger.
This is what makes this such a great merger!
Now, Good Pizza will continue its work as part of the Philabundance making pizzas and raising funds through your generous donations to support our work in Southeastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey. Together, we’ll fight to drive hunger from our communities today and end hunger for good.
WHO We Are
Good Pizza was founded by Ben Berman, a graduate student at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. When the pandemic hit Philadelphia in March of 2020, Ben had a big batch of pizza dough that he was planning to make for a get together with friends. After realizing that large gatherings probably weren't the best idea, Ben needed a plan to get rid of all that dough...
And that's how Good Pizza was born!
Philabundance was one of those organizations, and a valuable partnership was born. Because of our work combatting hunger and providing healthy food to our neighbors in need, Ben knew that Philabundance would be the perfect place to continue the good work he had started.
Now a Philabundance initiative, Good Pizza operates as part of the Philabundance Community Kitchen (PCK), providing free pizzas to raise money for Philabundance’s work combatting hunger in Southeastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey.
Contributions made to Good Pizza at Philabundance go directly to programs that provide meals to individuals and families in need, while the Good Pizza program also offers exciting learning opportunities for our PCK students.
