Gov. Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf Join Philabundance for Grand Opening Event

first_img First Lady Frances Wolf,  Press Release Governor Tom Wolf and First Lady Frances Wolf today joined local elected officials for the grand opening celebration of the Philabundance Community Kitchen (PCK). The 20,000 square foot facility is PCK’s first location in its 20-year history not shared with another entity.“In a year that has contained a great deal of hardship, it is wonderful to have the opportunity to celebrate a new beginning,” Gov. Wolf said. “Nothing could be more appropriate than celebrating with the Philabundance community. Philabundance has remained a steadfast partner in my administration’s commitment to ensuring that every Pennsylvanian has access to plentiful, nutritious food.”PCK is a 16-week culinary training and life skills program, providing opportunities to adults with no- to low income who need not just a job, but a second chance at life. PCK promotes the self-sufficiency of its students by preparing them for and connecting them to work in the food service industry and allows them to give back by preparing meals for those in need.The proceeds of PCKatering, PCK’s social enterprise, benefit students, graduates and neighbors facing hunger.At its height during COVID, PCK was providing up to 4,500 additional meals per week. These meals are distributed to a range of community agencies, including outreach meals for Project Home, the City of Philadelphia, a temporary shelter in Kensington, the Woodstock Shelter in North Philadelphia, the Hub of Hope and Federation Housing.The Wolf Administration has lodged a concerted, multi-agency effort to help those in need of food during this pandemic. Many Pennsylvanians who never required food assistance found themselves in need during these unprecedented times. Food pantries, food banks, and organizations across the state sought help to make food available and accessible.Before the COVID-19 pandemic began, more than 1.53 million Pennsylvanians experienced chronic hunger every day, including about 437,000 children.According to new projections from Feeding America, the pandemic has helped push that number to more than 2 million Pennsylvanians, including nearly 630,000 children.Feeding Pennsylvania member food banks have reported significant increases in the need for food assistance in their communities, with an average 65 percent increase in demand.“We know that emergency feeding efforts are just one part of a comprehensive food security strategy, and proactive, empowering programs such as PCK truly help attack the issue of hunger right at its roots, with results stretching across generations,” First Lady Frances Wolf said. “We are thrilled to celebrate the program’s monumental growth and the possibility that it represents.”Philabundance received $2 million in RACP funds to construct the 19,960 square foot, free-standing facility that includes 10,000 square feet of space for production and a training kitchen – both USDA certified; office and classroom space; locker rooms; ample storage and refrigeration; and flexible community space.As the largest hunger relief organization in the Delaware Valley, Philabundance plays an essential role in helping Pennsylvanians weather the COVID-19 crisis.“We are still fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still trying to keep our case numbers down, still waiting for a vaccine,” Gov. Wolf said. “But in the past several months we have also reopened the commonwealth. We have begun to explore a new way of living life in Pennsylvania.“And so, it is a great pleasure for me and Frances to join in celebrating the grand opening of the Philabundance Community Kitchen’s new facility. PCK is a place that understands new beginnings and second chances.” SHARE Email Facebook Twitter September 22, 2020center_img Gov.

first_img0Shares0000Mexico fans gathered in the capital’s main Zocalo square erupt as their team defeated Germany at the World Cup © AFP / RODRIGO ARANGUAMEXICO CITY, Mexico, Jun 18 – Thousands of jubilant Mexico supporters partied in the streets of the capital Sunday after their team’s shock 1-0 victory over World Cup holders Germany — singing, dancing, blaring car horns and cheering El Tri.The earth literally moved in quake-prone Mexico City when Hirving “Chucky” Lozano smashed home the game-winning goal in the 35th minute at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium — a football “earthquake of joy.” Seismologists said that they had detected an “artificial” rumbling, possibly caused by “widespread jumping” when the goal was scored.Fans crammed into the Zocalo, the city’s main square, to celebrate.“What happened today was an earthquake of joy for us — just imagine, we beat the world champions!” said Laura Villegas, a 45-year-old merchant who downed her beer with tequila in one gulp.“What happened hey, what happened hey, to the Germany that was going to beat us today?” the crowd chanted.The streets of Mexico City were full of jubilant football fans © AFP / RODRIGO ARANGUAPresident Enrique Pena Nieto joined the party, saying on Twitter: “Confirmed: Mexico competes and wins against the best in the world, Congratulations to @miseleccionmx! Great match!”Victory rallies erupted in other major cities such as Guadalajara, Toluca, Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez.– ‘Lozano for president’ –Fans celebrated across the country, including in Guadalajara © AFP / Ulises RuizThroughout the capital, the streets filled with exhilarated fans, on foot, bicycles, motorbikes or in cars. Some blasted their car stereos, while others shrieked in glee.Amid the cacophonous bustle, a veteran violinist played the traditional tune “Cielito Lindo” — roughly translated as “Lovely Sweet One.”The victory was a heart-stopping one, but “a small goal is still a goal,” said the musician, while fans left coins in his instrument case.One female fan, a flag in her hand and the national colors painted on her cheeks, screamed: “We are an Aztec warrior force!”“Lozano for president, Lozano for president!” fans cheered — not forgetting that the country will hold elections to choose a new leader on July 1.Ana Maria Contreras, a primary school teacher, came with her children and even dogs decked out in El Tri’s signature green jerseys to join the festivities.“We have shown that we can compete with any power. And I hope that whoever wins as president also knows how to lead us to victory,” she said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
