One in four Philadelphia residents are living in poverty and one in eight are living in deep poverty.  Our city remains the nation’s poorest big city, with a poverty rate that has stayed stagnant over the last 5 years.

On December 4 and 5, several Center for Hunger-Free Communities staff members attended the Mobilizing Action for Resilient Communities Conference here in Philadelphia.

I had a fantastic experience at this year’s Social Impact Exchange Conference on Scaling Impact. Despite being one of the few people from the non-profit sector, I was warmly welcomed to join for an extraordinary two days.

My name is Angela Nike Sutton and I am here to tell you that Poverty does not discriminate…

I am a Black woman, a mother of two beautiful Black boys, and I live in Northeast Philadelphia.

I have lived in poverty in Philadelphia my whole life. Philadelphia has the highest poverty rate of any large American city.

The face of Philadelphia poverty is most likely a Black mother like me.

Dear Friend,

All of us at the Center for Hunger-Free Communities refuse to accept the rise in hatred, bigotry, and racism in America.
