About Us

The Center for Hunger-Free Communities, established in 2004, is a community-engaged research, service, advocacy and policy center of Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health. The Center for Hunger-Free Communities offers multi-faceted research and action with the goal of developing innovative, empirically-tested solutions to the challenges of hunger and economic insecurity.

The Center for Hunger-Free Communities addresses hunger in all its forms by engaging in partnership with families, researchers, policymakers, and community leaders to:

  • Find solutions to hunger and poverty based on science and the human experience
  • Report on the health consequences of hunger and poverty to ensure accountability and enable action
  • Engage those who have experience with poverty as full partners in developing research, policies, and programs that promote health
  • Establish and support opportunities to build peace, nourishment, and a sense of shared community through our research, testimony, and action

We are committed to freedom and justice through fighting against all forms of oppression, exclusion, and discrimination - including but not limited to racism, classism, sexism, transphobia/homophobia, and ableism - in the world, in our communities, and in ourselves.
