Holiday Party with a Purpose :: December 18, 2012


ShareThe Philadelphia Self-Help and Resource Exchange, SHARE provides nutritious food to a network of 550 food cupboards and 250 host organizations each month. SHARE serves as the lead agency in Philadelphia County for the State Food Purchase Program and the Emergency Food Assistance program (TEFAP), which utilize state and federal funding to provide food each month to food cupboards in Pennsylvania. SHARE administers Philadelphia's Farm to Families Program. Nice Roots Farm recently added two high tunnels which allow SHARE to produce food and educate volunteers and community members on the process of growing food.

Party with a Purpose

Since 1997, Senator Vincent Hughes and his staff have hosted a holiday party to lift up the true meaning of the season “The Spirit of Giving.” With the recent devastating impact of Hurricane Sandy along the east coast, we believe that, now more than ever, there is a true need to make sure those families and many others do not go hungry, so we partner with SHARE to raise awareness of this issue and encourage our families, friends, neighbors and colleagues to support SHARE by helping to stock their cupboards so that they can continue to feed folks in our community.

You can find out more specifics about the Holiday Party with a Purpose and SHARE and provide your feedback on my website at as well as on Facebook and Twitter (@SenatorHughes).
