Lunch In Benefits St. Chris Hunger Initiative
To support the St. Christopher's Foundation for Children Dine In Help Out Initiative, the DMC staff skipped their usual Friday ordering out for lunch. Instead, the staff hosted a pot luck lunch and donated what they would have paid for lunch to the Dine In Help Out Initiative. Dine In Help Out utilizes the Farm to Families program to ensure that families in North Philadelphia have access to farm fresh fruits and vegetables with weekly pickups of food in neighborhoods. The plight of hunger in the St. Christopher's Hospital for Children neighborhood was featured in a Philadelphia Inquirer article. Since then, St. Chris in partnership with the Foundation has hosted a holiday turkey giveaway and is now promoting the Dine In Help Out initiative. Our CEO Carolyn Jackson was featured on NBC Channel 10 discussing the initiative.
