Mission Statement

The Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger fights hunger in Southeastern Pennsylvania through education, outreach, and advocacy. Our education and advocacy programs aim to empower emergency food providers, to inform concerned citizens, and to help shape public policy. Through our outreach, we are also working to improve participation in and access to the Food Stamp (SNAP) Program.

Description

In January 2003, the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger and its partners embarked on an 18-month Food Stamp (SNAP) Enrollment Campaign, funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). This effort aimed to test the efficacy of using student and faith-based volunteers in a program of outreach and screening to promote food stamp (SNAP) enrollment among potentially eligible low-income people. Although the grant ended more than two years ago, the Coalition has continued to move ahead with its work to connect the 60,000 eligible but not participating Philadelphians with the Food Stamp (SNAP) Program.
