How We Help

We Need Your Help Now More Than Ever!

Dear Friends,

As an organization focused on ensuring all those in our community have the food they need to live healthy lives, this is an exceptionally trying time. The Greater Philadelphia Coalition has quickly adapted our operations and is working to stay informed of local, state, and federal responses related to nutrition supports as the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) crisis unfolds.  

We know that those experiencing hunger are particularly vulnerable at times like these, and we know with business closures many of our neighbors are losing income and will need assistance. 
Our team is . . .

  • Working closely with our Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen Partners to support them in their efforts to find safe ways to deliver food to those who need it. 
  • Continuing to staff our SNAP Hotline  from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday to connect people to food and the SNAP benefits they need.  Our number is 215-430-0556.
  • Monitoring the rapidly changing landscape in terms of nutrition program policies and needed  Advocacy Efforts.

We recognize that this is an uncertain and stressful time for us all, and appreciate all that you do to continue to support those who are food insecure in our community.  Wishing you all health and safety!
