Hunger crisis remains as Philadelphia area moves toward ‘green’ reopening phase

"Buttered noodles, lot of pasta. Pasta and butter," said Diamond of most of the meals he's been making. 

So, the drive-thru food pantry that opened in a nearby parking lot owned by the Phillies has become a godsend for the two and many other people who are still suffering.

"We serve about 700 people every Friday,” said Samantha Retamar with Philabundance.

Philabundance opened this food bank right around the time Philadelphia moved into the 'yellow' phase. She says all agencies that feed the hungry will probably be doing this through the end of the year.

"This is a marathon, not a sprint. We totally understand that — although life is going into the ‘green phase’, Pennsylvania is going into a ‘green phase’ — right now, people are still not on their feet, people have lost their jobs, kids are out of school and that all adds into food insecurity,” Retamar said.
