Healthier Together: Hunger
Food insecurity is the lack of consistent access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food for an active, healthy life. See how Healthier Together is increasing access to healthier foods for families.
Hunger and Food Access
Nearly one in five Philadelphians do not have enough healthy food to eat to live a healthy lifestyle over the course of a year. Of the families that come to the CHOP Emergency Department, nearly one-third reported they are food insecure. We are building a multipronged strategy to address hunger and food insecurity among West and Southwest Philadelphia children.
