Chester Matters: Bennett Homes food distribution is a success

 The Delaware County Daily Times reported from the Bennett Homes community garden during their latest food distribution and reported…

 “We’re doing emergency food box distribution to fill in the gap for people having a hard time accessing food right now. We wanted to make sure people are able to get fresh produce in their diets,” said Natania Schaumburg, manager. Bennett Farm management, under the auspices of the Chester Housing Authority, purchased the outside produce with emergency funds from the Foundation for Delaware County.


The April 23 distribution was the second of four biweekly openings from noon-2 p.m. The stand moved all 120 produce boxes its first week, and were on pace to distribute another 120 at the midpoint Thursday. Organizers are giving priority to Ruth L. Bennett Homes residents and local senior citizens. “Some individual volunteers are picking up 10 or 20 boxes to drop to seniors that they know are in need,” said Schaumburg.
