Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger
Real people. Real hunger. Real help.
Our Mission: Founded in 1996, the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger strives to build a community where all people have the food they need to lead healthy lives. The Coalition connects people with food assistance programs and nutrition education; provides resources to a network of food pantries; and educates the public and policymakers about responsible solutions that prevent people from going hungry.
Our three programs address a spectrum of needs in Pennsylvania:
The Hunger Fighters Network supports more than 150 food pantries, providing them with funding, training and other tools so they can help more people in their communities.
The SNAP Campaign helps Philadelphia residents apply for public benefits. Since 2002, we've assisted more than 50,000 people, mainly through our SNAP (Food Stamp) Hotline.
The Policy Center applies the data and experiences gained on the front lines to advocate for responsible anti-hunger policies that meet the real need in our communities.
