Food insecurity is a very real concern all across America and especially in Philadelphia, which has the highest rate of poverty for any big city in the nation.

On Thursday, February 1, 2018 at 12 noon, Councilwoman Cindy Bass (D- 8th District), invited Preferred Meals, an Elior Company and their award-winning chef to provide a culinary experience for city Council Members.

The event took place in the Caucus Room on the 4th floor inside City Hall directly across from Council Chambers.  A sampling of fresh, nutritious meals was prepared. 

These same meals are served through the various programs in which Preferred Meals is the primary meal provider.  Preferred serves the School District of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, and The Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

In addition to City Council members pictured above, other Council members in attendance included Blondell Reynolds Brown (D- At-Large), Derek Green (D- At-Large), William K. Greenlee (D- At-Large), Kenyatta Johnson (D- 2nd District), David Oh (R- At- Large) and Cherelle Parker (D- 9th District). 

They sampled the same food that Preferred Meals serves to children of Philadelphia.  Councilmembers were also informed of PM’s efforts to educate the public on good nutrition and steps they have taken to help eradicate hunger in Philadelphia.

Preferred Meals has served the city of Philadelphia for over 30 years. The company continues to evolve and achieve the delicate balance of fresh entrées, nutritional benefits, clean ingredients, great flavor and affordable meals.
