Anti-Hunger Subcommittee Seeks Client Stories, Provides Tools
Let your voices be heard! The Anti-Hunger Subcommittee is seeking input from clients about their experiences with food assistance and nutrition programs in Philadelphia. These stories will help educate the public and city, state, and federal policymakers by showing that budgets are not just about dollar figures, but about people and the real needs of communities.
If you are an organization interested in adding to this project, feel free to use Coalition Against Hunger’s “Share Your Story” template and photo release form for reference, or adapt them as your organization sees fit.
Please send your client stories to Hannah Menzies. The subcommittee will be collecting them on a rolling basis throughout the fall and potentially into next year.
