Preferred Meals provides nutritious meals to students of the School District of Philadelphia and summer breakfast, lunch, snacks and supper meals for the city’s Park and Recreation Department programs. Preferred Meals is committed to the mission of mitigating homelessness and food insecurities for homeless children and families in the City of Philadelphia and the School District of Philadelphia.

Approximately $30,000 was raised that will go toward feeding the homeless and providing some luxuries that they do not routinely receive and are unable to afford.
