The Center for Hunger-Free Communities

Solutions Based on Science and the Human Experience


The Center for Hunger-Free Communities, established in 2004, is a community-engaged research, service, advocacy, and policy center of Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health in Philadelphia, PA.  The Center for Hunger-Free Communities offers multi-faceted research and action with the goal of developing innovative, empirically-tested solutions to the challenges of hunger and economic insecurity.

The Center's work currently encompasses two key projects: Witnesses to Hunger, which facilitates participation of mothers and caregivers of children who know poverty first-hand in the national dialogue on hunger and the Building Wealth and Health Network, which helps women break the cycle of poverty through a peer-oriented, asset-building model.
