April saw the kickoff meeting for the newly-minted Main Line Coalition. Organizations in Narberth, Ardmore, Lower Marion, and Bala Cynwyd began discussing the problems unique to their region. Members said they had seen a recent increase in pantry clients, and also discussed home delivery options to help get senior boxes to participants in the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP). The conversations are the beginning of what could be a promising collaboration among the coalition's members.

This new coalition is happy to welcome new members, and is especially interested in thoughts on how pantries can work within coalitions to achieve goals that benefit the entire community.
