William Penn Bank backs Grundy Foundation COVID-19 campaign for food

The Grundy Foundation in Bristol said the William Penn Bank has given $1,000 in support of the Foundation’s campaign, “COVID-19: Feeding Bristol Borough." The William Penn Bank donation builds on the recent initiative begun by The Grundy Foundation whereby local residents facing food insecurities due to COVID-19 would be fed by a partnership with Bristol restaurants. Participating restaurants include: Annabella’s Italian; Cesare's Ristorante; King George II Inn; Itri Wood Fired; and Mill Street Cantina.

Gene Williams, executive director of The Grundy Foundation, announced in May a campaign to feed Bristol Borough's elderly, homeless and families struggling with food insecurity due to the pandemic. He asked local community members to match the Foundation's $10,000 donation.

To date, including the William Penn Bank donation, just over $7,500 has been raised by the community.

Local restaurants provided meals to seniors, the homeless, and at-risk families during June and July; matching donations will provide meals into August. To learn more visit
