Food it Forward

During the pandemic, CB helped

local Main Line Main Line restaurants

from Wayne to Narberth ​while also

helping those in need and on the front lines.

To help the local community impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, Community Backstop teamed up with former Phillies reporter and Comcast SportsNet anchor Leslie Gudel and her Food it Forward program. Community Backstop built on Leslie’s initiative by supporting the local area restaurants, first responders, and families in need from Wayne to Narberth along the Main Line.​

With Food it Forward, our donors’ contributions double dipped.  One hundred percent of all donations went directly to purchasing gift cards from locally based, regionally owned food establishments. We then donated those gift cards to first responders and families in need.
