Sun East Federal Credit Union’s President & CEO, Michael J.

I’m grateful that Sun East employees were on hand to show our support of Philabundance’s mission and thank them for the tireless work they do to relieve hunger in our region.”

Philabundance was founded with the simple belief that no one should go hungry while healthy food goes to waste. Their mission is to drive hunger from our communities today and to end hunger for good. In addition to food distribution, they reduce food waste, increase access to nutritious meals, and tackle the root causes of hunger through programs such as the Philabundance Community Kitchen. https://www.philabundance.org/.

Credit unions are member-owned and operated with the inherent philosophy of people helping people. Sun East is proud to have played a role in this initiative to help Philabundance with the work they are doing in our communities.
