Well this program does exist and it is called MindSet MindSet is brought to you by one of the oldest community based organizations in Philadelphia, dating back to 1870. This organization is called Episcopal Community Services.

We were lucky enough to volunteer with Episcopal Community Services at one of their cook-off events, which prepare 2,400 meals a year, for seniors in the Philadelphia area. In just a couple hours we help feed hundred of people in the city. We were even featured in their Spring Volunteer Newsletter.
