*While Step Up to the Plate has closed, we are still serving free lunch at our main building from 12:30 – 2:00 pm using donated groceries and meals. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com with inquiries.*
Step Up To The Plate was a collaborative effort of Broad Street Ministry, SEAMAAC and Prevention Point Philadelphia working closely with the City of Philadelphia to provide free lunches to our communities, Monday – Friday. From April of 2020 to December 31, 2021, Step Up provided 878,165 free meals to individuals and families throughout the city.
Prevention Point Philadelphia managed the site at Ruth and Clearfield in Kensington, which was later moved to the lot next to our main building. We periodically offered other services including COVID-19 testing with UPenn Medicine, COVID-19 vaccinations with Rapid Vax Temple, free yoga through Yoga 4 Philly, voter registration, clothing distribution, art workshops and live music.
Through our partnership with Penn Medicine, Prevention Point also still offers free COVID-19 testing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 12:30 – 3:00 pm. No appointment or documentation needed.
