Congratulations to the Chester County Food Bank

September 20, 2010

Robert McNeil partnered with other local philanthropists to re-start the food bank, which served over 110,000 residents of Chester Country in 2009.  The project was featured in Sunday's Philadelphia Inquirer--click here to see the article.

Robert McNeil partnered with other local philanthropists to re-start the food bank, whose predecessor went bankrupt in early 2009. 

The bank's statistics show how important it is for the people of Chester: last year, it served over 110,000 of Chester's 499,000 residents. Food banks like Chester's are a crucial support in the fight against child and family hunger, and we applaud McNeil and everyone involved with the Chester County Food Bank for their hard work.

Robert McNeil is a board member of the Claneil Foundation, which supports efforts to build healthy communities in the Delaware Valley region.  A number of the activities of Witnesses to Hunger are made possible by the Foundation's support.
