Partner Highlight: Chester County Food Bank 2016

Modena, Mogreena, Waste Oil Recyclers Donates Food

Every spring at the Waste Oil Recyclers compound, we sprout green thumbs. Big green thumbs! We do it for a few reasons.

  1. We love gardening.
  2. We love fresh food.
  3. We love to give back to our community.


For us, #3 is vital to the greatest “sustainability” factor of all: taking care of each other.

This year our gardens produced tons of fresh vegetables. Here’s what we did with it:

So that’s 2,000 lbs.

The Chester County Food Bank

Let’s take a minute to understand and appreciate the Chester County Food Bank — and, more importantly, let’s recognize the problem that it’s trying to solve.

  • According to the Chester County Commissioners,  “On any given day in Chester County, 70,000 people are food insecure, and one in five children go to bed hungry.”
  • The Food Bank is housed in a 36,000 square foot facility including our 3,500 square foot commercial kitchen, 4,250 square feet of refrigeration and freezer space and our warehouse.  
  • They secure food through donations, state and federal food assistance programs  and by purchasing fresh and non-perishables using grant monies.
  • They have three refrigerated box trucks — their drivers make daily deliveries to cupboards and social service agencies throughout the 759 square miles of Chester County.

Thanks Larry Welsch for recognizing our contribution this year but thank you and your staff for operating a top-notch community-focused organization. It has a direct impact on our neighbors and community members.

Dear Friends,

Thanks you so much for this very generous gift to the work of the Food Bank! We are so fortunate to have the help of great friends like you. Thank you for standing with us to fight hunger in our own county!
