Since 2009, SEPTA customers and employees have donated the equivalent of more than 264,000 meals.
Philabundance provides food to approximately 90,000 people every week in nine counties in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In 2015, Philabundance distributed 30 million pounds of food across the Delaware Valley.
