Aramark Partners to Feed Philadelphia StudentsJuly 22, 2020
Aramark has partnered with the Urban League of Philadelphia (ULP) to provide 500,000 meals to qualified recipients in the Philadelphia area throughout the summer.
The partnership, known as the Summer Food Service Program, calls for Aramark to provide at least 65,000 meals per week to ULP distribution sites set up in local community churches, organizations, and municipal buildings. All recipients are aged 18 and under and qualified to receive meals under the National School Lunch Program. The Summer Food Service Program will run through August 30.
“We’re honored to partner with the Urban League of Philadelphia to provide continuity and community access to meals this summer, especially during this public health crisis,” said Barbara Flanagan, president of Aramark’s K-12 Education division. “These are incredibly challenging times for our country and our city and Aramark is proud to assist the local community–our hometown–to help ensure that children and families stay nourished.”
Aramark provides food services, facilities management, and uniform and career apparel to health care institutions, universities and school districts, stadiums and arenas, and businesses around the world. For more information, visit www.aramark.com.
