Phans Feeding Families Virtual Food Drive

Phans feeding families

Citizens Bank, Philabundance, and Phillies team up for 2020 Phans Feeding Families Virtual Food Drive

Be a hunger hero and donate food virtually through June 26 to help feed families in need

The COVID-19 pandemic has proven that the need for hunger relief is more urgent than ever - and that’s why Citizens Bank, Philabundance, and the Philadelphia Phillies announced they’re teaming up to host a Phans Feeding Families Virtual Food Drive.

Citizens Bank Mid-Atlantic President Daniel K. Fitzpatrick kicked off the food drive with a $40,000 contribution from the bank, which will provide up to 80,000 meals to individuals and families in desperate need.

Members of the community can join the effort by visiting and donating now through June 26.

This is the first time in the 10-year history of the Phans Feeding Families Hunger Relief Program that a Virtual Food Drive will be held to help feed families in need. In years past, fans have supported the cause on Phans Feeding Families Day, held during a Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park.

Now, they can virtually donate Philabundance’s most-needed food items, such as rice, peanut butter, or vegetables. Supporters can also choose to donate from as little as a dollar to gifts of $1,000 or more. The goal is to raise $75,000 for this effort.
