Need food? Call our SNAP Hotline: 215-430-0556


Love From Philly

“We have people here that need help, but we also have to reach outside of our community when disasters like this happen,” said Derek Felton, Community Organizer with the Coalition Against Hunger.

Today, Derek is dropping off boxes of supplies to the Red Cross destined for hurricane relief efforts in Texas and Puerto Rico. Hundreds of items were collected from the dozens of local food pantries that The Coalition supports through our Victory In Partnership or “VIP” Program.

Statement from the Coalition Against Hunger

Moments ago, the House of Representatives passed the 2018 budget resolution by a count of 219-206. This resolution would strip billions of dollars from vital programs that help families make ends meet and strengthen communities. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps), will be among those most deeply cut if the Senate  follows suit with a total disregard for working families who struggle put food on the table.

Advocacy Alert: Calls Needed

Thank you for continuing to stand up for those who face hunger in our region. The Coalition Against Hunger is working to protect the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or food stamps) from devastating cuts in the federal budget. Through our Protect SNAP campaign, more than 1,500 emails have been sent to legislators so far this year! Now is the time to let your voice be heard. Please call your local representative in Congress and tell them you oppose cuts to SNAP!


Nourishing Neighbors

This fall, taking part in the fight against hunger is as easy as shopping!

Thomas' Brand, ACME Markets, and Giant Food Stores have pledged a portion of Thomas' English Muffins, Bagels, and Swirl Bread products to help thousands of families put food on the table in our region through the Thomas' Nourishing Neighbors campaign.
