The food pantry currently serves over 100 families.For more information, visit UMACC.org. The King of Prussia business community has supported UMACC in various ways since it was established in 2018, but support for the pantry has grown in response to the increased demand due to the pandemic. In March and April when businesses were forced to shut down, Bonefish Grill, bartaco, True Food Kitchen, Outback Steakhouse, Hedgehog Grill, Chick-Fil-A, Sheraton Valley Forge Hotel and Valley Forge Casino Resort all made food donations to the pantry. Other businesses, like First Quality and Costco, donated important supplies like laundry detergent and diapers, while King of Prussia District issued a challenge to the community to raise money for a van for UMACC, matching donations up to $1,000.

“I am proud of the way our business community comes together time and time again to support this important resource for Upper Merion Township,” said Eric Goldstein, Executive Director of King of Prussia District. “This is a community that supports one another and thefood drive is a perfect example of that spirit.”
