Hospitality & Corporate Council

We’re not a soup kitchen. We’re not a shelter. We are a community that believes dignity and respect are key differentiators in making a meal truly transformative. At BSM, we’re driving new solutions to homelessness and hunger in Philadelphia.

Our model provides a five star experience reducing social friction and triggers of scarcity so guests begin to utilize stabilizing services to move their lives forward.

This isn’t just vital for the guests we serve, but for the Philadelphia in which we want to live and do business. The talent and resources the corporate community can provide enable new programming, sustainability and an increase in the amount of guests BSM serves.
