About Our Roles 

Samantha Sandhaus

“I started Feeding Philly to combat the need I knew was really prevalent in my school and community. I am inspired every day by the compassion of my team and the perseverance we have together to make change.”

Xavier Thorntan

 “I strive to support and oversee the leadership of our President, Samantha Sandhaus, to eventually sustain Feeding Philly’s commitment to the community in the future. Being the daughter of immigrants, my mother did not always have a reliable source of healthy or nutritious food. Hearing of the various challenges she faced in her upbringing inspires me to work with Feeding Philly, so I can have a large impact on families just like hers through education and food distributions."

Hannah Thomas

“My role for Feeding Philly is to work on fundraising for our projects that help combat food waste such as our CARE project and and events that help keep student engagement like our pie eating contest! Feeding Philly has helped me take that first step in helping my community and using our student voices/actions together in order to make a difference. From meeting new people just as passionate about this project, to getting closer with friends who have supported this club since the beginning, it has become a privilege to work with such a diverse and hardworking team.”
