How We Help

Join Us For The 5K That Strengthens Food Access Across Philadelphia


Since the Coalition Against Hunger was founded in 1996, we’ve held an annual 5K to support our work to elevate the visibility of food insecurity, to raise funds to support our work, and to provide a platform for our local pantry and soup kitchen partners to do the same. Now in its 27th year, the Race Against Hunger continues to bring together the community for one cause: to strengthen food access across Philadelphia. This race is a fun, safe, family-friendly way for people of all ages to help. This year’s Race Against Hunger will be held at the Navy Yard on Saturday, September 30th. Proceeds benefit the Coalition Against Hunger’s programs that connect households with the food resources they need through our SNAP (food stamp) Hotline; support free food programs such as food pantries and soup kitchens, and advocate for the bigger changes that will put an end to hunger.
