Sharing Excess: Combating Hunger in Philadelphia Download

13:41 Download August 31st, 2020

Evan Ehlers, Founder and Executive Director of Sharing Excess returns to Ben Around Philly to talk about the organization’s efforts to bring food to those who need it. This student run organization partners with restaurants, grocery stores and other organizations to save excess food from being thrown away. The food is saved from becoming waste, and then transported to where it’s needed most.

They do this by hosting ‘Food Fests” to hand out food on the street. They also help by transporting food to other local organizations like Philabundance and Sunday Love Project. These organizations then help distribute the food to the public.

Sharing Excess has recently partnered with Lavazza Professional who plans to gift luxury coffee brewers to businesses in the Philadelphia area. These brewers are offered to local businesses with no strings attached. If your business would benefit from a free brewer from Lavazza Professional, simply fill out this form. A year’s supply of coffee is included!

If all of this sounds familiar, it could be because of an earlier BEN Around Philly episode. Kristen’s last interview with Evan Ehlers focused on the partnership between Sharing Excess and Sunday Love Project. Find that interview HERE.
