happy people volunteering

First Bank is working with the Mid-Atlantic Food Trade Organization (MAFTO) to help in the fight against hunger! By purchasing “Care Packages” from MAFTO, which benefits Philabundance and other food-related charities, First Bank is supporting MAFTO’s fundraising efforts and helping to spread the word about this great cause!

MAFTO’s goal is to raise money to promote the retail food industry through education and scholarships and to donate to those in need.  Normal fundraising events have unfortunately been postponed or cancelled due to COVID, so they decided to take a different path by developing “Care Packages” which are packed with contributions from area food retailers. These packages are available for public purchase.

“This region’s food companies have always been generous. MAFTO is looking to play its part by bringing together our friends in the food community to help Philabundance and people in need,” said Mark Phander, president of MAFTO.
