Sunday Suppers is currently serving families in two Philadelphia locations: Juniata, a community with high rates of poverty, crime, and food insecurity and Germantown, where more than 26% of residents live in deep poverty (defined as living on less than 50% of the Federal Poverty line).
Mariana Bracetti academy Charter School (MBA) is located in the Juniata section of Philadelhia and our suppers there are held on Wednesday evenings. MBA is a K-12 school. At MBA “All students draw upon their passion, motivation and life experience to become independent, adaptive problem solvers, powerful thinkers, effective communicators, and meaningful contributors to the larger community. Our school community is committed to leveraging every resource to ensure all students are prepared for college and career success“. The student body is made up mostly of Latino students from the Kensington and Fairhill area of Philadelphia; all students are eligible for free lunch daily (an indicator of poverty).
