Mission and Vision

Group of staff members posing together

The Center for Hunger-Free Communities, established in 2004, is a community-led research and advocacy center of Drexel University's Dornsife School of Public Health in Philadelphia. 

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


Create a refuge that promotes individual and collective healing, resilience, and justice for a more loving and nourishing world.

We achieve this through:

  • Partnering with people who are most affected by trauma and oppression to advocate for policy change
  • Challenging today’s political, social, and economic systems with peer support and radical real-life education
  • Building generational wealth and expanding access to resources
  • Welcoming vulnerability and sharing joy to build community power
