Good Morning. My name is Kathy Fisher, and I am the Policy Manager at the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger. Thank you, for taking the time to consider this very important resolution, to all of its sponsors, and to Councilwoman Blackwell for inviting me to testify today.
The Coalition works to build a community where all people have the food they need to lead healthy lives. We connect families with SNAP (Food Stamps) and other food resources, provide food pantries capacity building assistance; and, advocate for policies that improve access to nutrition supports.
