Food for Thought 2017

Food for Thought has become one of the most well-attended and unique food events in Philadelphia. Proceeds from the more than 600 attendees help formerly homeless families attain higher education, gain careers and become homeowners. For the party, the Urban Outfitters HQ gets transformed with tantalizing offerings prepared by 20+ top chefs and restaurants as well as an exciting auction, games and live music. This year's event features former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell as emcee. All proceeds support ACHIEVEability's life-changing work — breaking the generational cycle of poverty for low income, single parent and homeless families.

Where: Urban Outfitters HQ at the Navy Yard

When: April 22, 2017 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
