State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta (D – 181st Dist.) recently announced that the Philabundance Community Kitchen in North Philadelphia is receiving a $76,101 grant to help in its fight to end hunger.

“Philabundance plays an integral role in eliminating food insecurities and lifting communities out of poverty,” Kenyatta said. “I secured this funding because I am committed to helping the nonprofit be successful and ensure the new Philabundance Community Kitchen is able to offer free job training opportunities for low-income families and produce meals for our most vulnerable neighbors.” 

The grant was awarded through the Department of Economic and Community Development’s Local Share Account and will be used to purchase a generator for the new facility, which broke ground along N.10th St. back in May.
