Kenyatta secures a $76,000 state grant to help new Philabundance Community Kitchen

State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta announced today that the new Philabundance Community Kitchen in North Philadelphia is receiving a $76,101 grant to help in its fight to end hunger.

“Philabundance plays an integral role in eliminating food insecurities and lifting communities out of poverty,” Kenyatta, D-Phila., said. “I secured this funding because I am committed to helping the nonprofit be successful and ensure the new Philabundance Community Kitchen is able to offer free job training opportunities for low-income families and produce meals for our most vulnerable neighbors.” 

The grant was awarded through the Department of Economic and Community Development's Local Share Account and will be used to purchase a generator for the new facility, which broke ground along N. 10th St. back in May.

DCED’s Local Share Account distributes a portion of slot machine license operation fees paid by casinos operating within the City of Philadelphia. Funds are available for economic development, neighborhood revitalization, community improvement, and other projects in the public interest across the city.
