The Center for Hunger-Free Communities is about more than research and telling stories. We strongly believe in the need to take action. In a city where one-third to one-half of all households with children cannot afford food, everyone needs to get involved in finding solutions. Government agencies, corporations, hospitals, foundations, nonprofits, and ordinary citizens all have important roles to play.
We encourage everyone to find Ways to Get Involved.
Please join us in our efforts through participating in our bi-annual national conference on poverty and hunger, Beyond Hunger: Real People, Real Solutions, or through our other Upcoming Events. You can also make a contribution to the Center or the Witnesses to Hunger project.
This year, as we recognize the 50th Anniversary of the War on Poverty, the media, advocates and legislators have worked to improve the conversations around issues of hunger and poverty in America. People are working to determine where there have been successes, and where further strategizing is still needed.
The mothers and fathers of Witnesses to Hunger know firsthand the struggles of poverty and hunger. As experts in how government assistance programs are working on the ground, they know what works and what doesn’t. They have a lot of ideas on how to end poverty and how to increase opportunities for all families in America.
