Matthew 25 Resource 10/23/09-Pennsylvania Hunger Action Center

Here's How ...
The Pennsylvania Hunger Action Center works to end hunger and increase opportunities for all Pennsylvanians to meet their food needs with health and dignity. In existence for 30 years, formerly as the Pennsylvania Coalition for Food and Nutrition, the Center serves as an active voice to shape public food policy.

The Center's efforts focus on:
Linking people to food
Policy studies, news, alerts
Anti-hunger networking

Here's why ...
Providing food to meet emergency needs is not enough. For people who have few resources, achieving health and dignity requires consistent access to nutritious food through the normal routines of daily life. This goal can be reached if we all pay attention to the causes of hunger and food insecurity, whatever those may be.

Here's who ...
The Hunger Action network of supporting organizations includes nutrition educators, food banks, advocacy groups, charitable food providers, religous and educational institutions.

Hunger Action's Food Stamp Line helps people decide whether to apply for food stamp benefits, as well as help those who decide to apply do so.
