The Center for Hunger-Free Communities

Solutions Based on Science and the Human Experience

Ways to Get Involved

1) Connect with your leaders 

Hold our legislators and ourselves accountable for ending hunger in our city, region and country and beyond. Reach out to your Senate and House representatives and local leaders in your community to educate them about the issues and the importance of addressing hunger in our communities and in the United States.

2) Advocate for yourself and others

Educate your family, friends, community, and write to your leaders about what you know poverty and hunger, and what concerns you. 

Share your personal experiences with hunger and poverty.

Engage those in your community experiencing hunger and poverty firsthand to learn more, provide them opportunities to share their experience, and become a better advocate. Anyone can be a "Witness" to poverty and hunger in their community.

3) Learn more

Read and learn more about the issues and policies that affect hunger and poverty. See our research that includes peer reviewed publications and policy briefs.  

4) Come dine at the EAT Cafe.

The Center's EAT Cafe is Philadelphia's first pay-what-you-can restaurant. Everyone is welcome for a delicious meal not matter their ability to pay for it.  Come and have dinner with us, if you aren't in Philadelphia, find a community cafe in your area.

5) Share your talents and your time

If you have the time, volunteer with a local agency to help augment their workforce.  Offer your skills to help others by providing job training, teaching literacy, staffing a pantry, or teaching computer skills. 

6) Share your resources. 

If you are interested in donating to the Center or one of our programs, please see our Donation page for further information.

7) Contact us

We always want to hear your ideas for change. There are so many different ways that we can contribute to bringing an end to hunger in the United States. We look forward to hearing from you.
