“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.

DCED’s Local Share Account distributes a portion of slot machine license operation fees paid by casinos operating within the City of Philadelphia. Fun

ds are available for economic development, neighborhood revitalization, community improvement, and other projects in the public interest across the city.
