Mission and Vision
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 fighting against 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.
To 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
