Challenge

In the U.S., 1 in 4 children live in homes where food has run short over the past year. And in Philadelphia, a city with one of the highest rates of hunger in the nation, nearly half of all children received food from a food pantry. Hunger can jeopardize a child's health and development. Hungry children are more likely to get sick and be hospitalized. They also struggle to learn in school, impeding their ability to grow into healthy, successful adults.

Solution

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.
No child should go hungry this year. With your support, the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger can continue to help kids get the nutritious food they need.

Long-Term Impact

A can of soup will feed a child for a meal, but a small donation can feed a family for a year. By helping more people obtain federal nutrition assistance, the Coalition ensures thousands of families can put food on their tables this year.
