Broad Street Ministry
What Does Hero Mean?
Broad Street Ministry (BSM) believes we can transform our city, our neighborhoods and ourselves when we attend to the needs of our neighbors living in the most vulnerable of conditions. Through Radical Hospitality, BSM opens its doors to everyone of all races, religions, gender identities, sexual orientations, ethnicities, ages, and socio-economic statuses to provide five weekly meals, alongside critical services and basic needs to 6,000 individuals per year with the goal of leading individuals back on better path of mental, physical and spiritual wellness and wholeness. BSM was instrumental in helping launch the #StepUptoThePlatePHL initiative in response to COVID-19, which provided daily meals at three food distribution sites, totaling 129,866 meals in the City of Philadelphia to help relieve hunger.
