The Philadelphia 76ers and The Giant Co. are teaming up to address childhood hunger in the greater Philadelphia region. Both organizations have begun a month-long campaign at Southwark School in Philadelphia as part of a series of events to raise awareness of and eliminate childhood hunger.Giant 76ers logo

“No one, especially children, should have to wonder where their next meal is coming from,” said Matt Simon, chief marketing officer, The Giant Co.. “Eliminating hunger in the communities we serve is something Giant is passionate about, and working with the 76ers is one way we can help ensure kids across the region have access to nutritious and delicious food over the weekend, so that they can reach their full potential both in and outside of the classroom.”

According to Feeding America, approximately one in five Philadelphia children is food insecure, meaning they don’t have reliable access to enough nutritionally adequate food. Children dealing with hunger are more likely to be held back a grade in elementary school, have social and behavioral problems, and experience developmental impairments.  

“As our partnership with The Giant Company continues, we are looking forward to raising awareness of childhood hunger in Philadelphia throughout the month of March,” Philadelphia 76ers SVP, Corporate Partnerships Activation Chad Biggs said. “Providing local youth with fresh groceries and educating them about the importance of a healthy diet is something both organizations are eager to do as we aim to reduce, and eventually help eliminate, childhood hunger.”

During March, Giant and the 76ers will partner to raise awareness about childhood hunger in Philadelphia.
