Cook-Off Expands

The Cook-Off Program has taken another step forward in its commitment to feeding Philadelphia’s hungry. Starting this year Cook-Off will expand its schedule from once-every-other month to once-a-month of meal preparation.

This expansion is made possible by a grant of $5,000 from the W.W. Smith Charitable Trust, a private foundation that grants funds for only for three specific purposes: medical research in heart disease, cancer and AIDS; financial aid for full-time undergraduate students; and food, clothing and shelter for children, families and the elderly.

As part of our expansion initiative, we expect also to partner with additional organizations to receive and distribute the meals as well as those who are a source of volunteers.
