In Philadelphia county, 22% of residents are food-insecure. While there are food assistance programs – including food pantries, soup kitchens, and senior meal sites – available to Philadelphians, such resources may be difficult for those in need to learn about or find.
Founded in 1996, the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger strives to build a community where all people have the food they need to lead healthy lives. The Coalition connects people with food assistance programs and nutrition education; provides resources to a network of food pantries; and educates the public and policymakers about responsible solutions that prevent people from going hungry.

We hope that Philly Food Finder will be a great asset to FPAC and the greater Philadelphia community. PhillyFoodFinder was a “2016 Outstanding Nominee” for the “Mayor’s Award for Distinguished Group Service Project” during the 4th Annual Mayor and County Recognition Day for National Service.
