Food and Wellness Network (FAWN) coordinates a network of community-based food pantries offering nutritious food, infant formula, diapers, nutrition education, and other resource connections to families in Philadelphia. FAWN is open to everyone. No ID is needed and there are no requirements to participate.

FAWN also promotes nutrition, healthy eating habits, wellness, and healthy recipes, connects clients to resources and benefits, and provides health screenings to vulnerable populations.

FAWN has launched its BOOST Case Management Program providing one-on-one coaching and individualized support with goals, and The Clothing Nook, a clothing closet at our Rising Sun location.

Appointments are highly recommended. Please call 445.216.9766 to make an appointment. Or, click here to refer yourself or someone else to FAWN!

We are always looking for volunteers to support our pantry operations.

Volunteers must:

  • Be 16 or older
  • Be available during pantry operating hours (Tuesday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.)
  • Have or be willing to get the necessary background clearances
  • Commit to volunteering regularly for at least a 3 month period

Please note that due to the size of our spaces and locations in schools and health clinics, we are unable to accept large groups of volunteers or volunteers for a one-off volunteer opportunity.

Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to inquire about volunteer opportunities. 


You can support the families who visit our pantries by organizing a drive for shelf-stable items, toiletries and household products and making essentials kits for our neighbors who need it the most. 

Feel free to start a drive on your own or join together with a team of your co-workers or community members! Or, you can purchase items from our Amazon Wishlist.

The Clothing Nook is always accepting donations of new or very gently used clothing and shoes for adults and children. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you'd like to donate to The Clothing Nook. 


We are always looking for new ways to expand our resources and education for our community. This could be:

  • Setting up a table at our pantry distributions to share information and resources with the FAWN community
  • Facilitating a workshop or educational event at our pantry location
  • Partnering on special events 
  • And more!
