Hunger

Hunger Initiatives

We care about those who cannot obtain adequate food for themselves. With an overall poverty rate of 25 percent, Philadelphia is the poorest big city (population over one million) in the country.  Areas like West Philadelphia and Chester now are the second poorest and hungriest in the entire United States.

This event is held monthly September through June. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
