PHENND Fellows- Community Building Liaison
 
 
 
For 15 years, Feast of Justice has supported households experiencing poverty and food insecurity in Northeast Philadelphia through food and resource assistance. We serve 2000 unique households and are one of the largest food providers in the city—distributing 2 million pounds of food since the pandemic began. Yet, much of our work, in a foot-traffic dependent area, supports the immediate neighborhood. We are now embarking on an expansion project—to bring these resources to a neighboring community, while also co-locating with other agencies in a service hub to provide hope in even broader ways.

Member Duties : The overall goal of the PHENND Fellow VISTA is to build capacity for work in a new community through enacting plans for outreach to residents and partners, considering models for shared service operation, and developing educational materials for the community. Specifically, the VISTA will: 1) Research community needs local to the Castor Gardens/Lawncrest area; 2) Identify new partners and resources that will help to further the goals of Feast of Justice and/or the collaborative hub vision; 3) Develop and engage in a community and business outreach plan to local residents on resources made available through the expansion space.
