City Announces Free Food Distribution-No Northeast Locations Announced

by Alex Lloyd Gross

Getting free food during this COVID-19 is a Godsend for people that got laid off or are out of work. The city announced that Monday and Thursday from 10:00AM to Noon one free box of food will be distributed per household to city residents. This is done through Share Food Program and Philabundance.  The city says that more locations are going to be announced.  However, right off the bat, there is a huge desert between the Bucks County line and the nearest distribution point in the city. The closest is at 1906 Harrison Street. Keep the Faith Ministries.

The full list is below.806 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in the city. One male , over 100 years old, died from complications in a Nursing Home.

The Community Based Testing Site at Citizens Bank Park tested 188 individuals yesterday. The site is open today from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., weather permitting. If early closure of the site is necessary, it will be announced on the Philadelphia Department of Public Health’s Twitter page @PHLPublicHealth and through the COVIDPHL text alert system.
