Today I thought I would share with you an update on how our SBA Ignite initiative is helping the food service industry and feeding the hungry.
On April 7th we had our first delivery of food to a center city Philadelphia community center who has been feeding their neighbors every Wednesday. Through the generosity of SBAIgnite learners, we were able to source meal boxes from a local restaurant that fed more than 90 food insecure individuals through distribution with the Congregation Rodeph Shalom Breaking Bread on Broad Program. We are humbled by the gratitude from those being served, as quoted, “Thank you so much for these meals. God bless you for this work.” We are looking forward to sharing more testimonials on the positive impact of this joint program soon.
If you are a small business owner or entrepreneur interested in learning about opportunities for business growth and also to help those in need, please visit the SBAIgnite program page or if you are interested in contributing to meals for the program visit the Food Connect SBA Ignite donation page.
We look forward to seeing on our LIVE or on-demand Unpacking the SBA sessions every Wednesday. Sign up here.
