Ongoing Kroc Services through COVID-19What is the Kroc Center doing during this closure? The Kroc Center is working with The Salvation Army of Greater Philadelphia to provide necessary emergency services to our community. Primarily, we have converted our gymnasium into a temporary food warehouse and distribution site. We are currently packaging meals that will be distributed by The Salvation Army to those in need in our entire region.
Is the outdoor campus available while the center is closed? Unfortunately, both our center and our campus are closed to all visitors at this time. We hope that all in our community are abiding by state and local travel restrictions, including staying at home during this pandemic.
Are any Kroc Center services available during this time? Yes!
As a food distribution site, we are offering:
- • Drive-through and walk-up meal distribution each Monday at 4:00pm, Wednesday at 10:00am, and Friday at 2:00pm. Appointments are not required, and we will supply home meals to all who attend, while supplies last..
