The IFA operates the Family Backpack Center which provides a supplemental food source for children and their families in the Morrisville School District who have been identified as food insecure. The Family Backpack Center is staffed by volunteers. The shelves are stocked with food donated by our partner faith communities, local farms, grocery stores, and financial contributions from individuals, businesses, and organizations
The Interfaith Food Alliance is a faith based organization that fights hunger in Lower Bucks County, PA by educating the community, advocating for those in need, and feeding hungry children and their families
In order to fight hunger, the IFA believes we must understand food insecurity and the social issues which impact those who are hungry.
Because shame is a reality for those who are food insecure, and because there is such stigma around the issues of hunger and poverty, we believe through knowledge and education; we can shine a light in the darkness.
We share with our elected officials the stories of their constituents from whom they may not otherwise hear.
We write letters of support for bills which provide resources to fund programs such as WIC, SNAP, school breakfast and lunch programs, and meals for children when school is not in session.
IFA participates in faith based advocacy with their partner communities.
