The Real Deal Food Ministry feeding 2000 families weekly during Coronavirus Outbreak

[PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, April 7, 2020] In a day and time when COVID-19 is prevalent in our country, companies forced to close their doors, people are temporarily unemployed, and others struggle to provide for their children and families. The Real Deal Food Ministry has been on the streets each day, giving out free groceries to families in need. The Real Deal Food Ministry started from Bethlehem of Deliverance Church located, 2016 W. Berks St. Phila. PA. over 25 years ago. It is our mission to eradicate hunger!

The Real Deal Food Ministry is a nonprofit 501C3 that owns and operates a 26 ft. refrigerated truck, which holds 26,000 pounds of groceries delivered to communities in Philadelphia daily.

The Real Deal Food Ministry is designed to make life easier for families who struggle to get to the supermarket or prefer not to go because of social distancing. So we pull up to various communities and deliver the food in grocery boxes to a central location, relatively close to people’s homes. So many just come to the truck with a shopping cart that can hold the food until

they safely return home. We remain in compliance with the law by asking people to stay 6 feet apart, wear a mask and gloves for safety, and the food is safely stored on a refrigerated truck.

My reason for contacting you today is to be able to help more people in need, by getting the word out through mass media. The last year 2019, we gave out over 2 million pounds of food, and feed over 50,000 families, today we targeted to help even more. Since the coronavirus, we have been feeding over 2000 people four days a week totaling so far 11,000 people with boxes filled with food that weighs approximately 50 pounds. We recently gave out 500 fresh chickens and 700 wild-caught salmon fillets plus can goods and dry products at 11th & Wyoming St. at 1pm. 

Bethlehem of Deliverance Church is the sponsor of the Real Real Deal Food Ministry, a vital component of the community for over 60 years. I am the third Pastor of the church, and my passion is to serve the community by being on the streets, not just talking about it behind close doors. I am always out among the people in our community helping wherever I can lend a hand

Our ministry is well respected in the community for the love, care, and compassion by sharing the resources we have been entrusted with.
