Carey Morgan, Executive Director 215-430-0555 ext. 100, Carey Morgan has served as Executive Director of the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger since 2007. Over the past decade, the Coalition has helped more than 50,000 families in Southeastern Pennsylvania enroll in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and other public benefits and provided resources to more than 100 food pantries in the region. As a recognized advocate on SNAP and hunger-related issues, Ms. Morgan has been featured in multiple national and international media outlets, including BBC World News, Fox Business News, NPR and Politico.
Prior to joining the Coalition Against Hunger, Ms. Morgan served as Special Assistant to the Interim CEO at the American Red Cross Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter, coordinating local responses to disasters like Hurricane Katrina and the Indonesian Tsunami. She has six years of experience in the financial sector, working as a Strategic Partnership Consultant for a leading investment firm based in Atlanta. Her passion for justice and poverty alleviation inspired her to translate her business knowledge into efficient and effective outcomes in the nonprofit sector.

Gov. Corbett's decision to cut General Assistance benefits also accounts for the increased need in emergency food, said Carey Morgan, executive director of the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger.
"Any time a public benefit like General Assistance is cut, you see the impact by people needing more emergency food," Morgan said.
Things are not expected to improve for residents in need of food, shelter, or both, Morgan said.
"Congress is considering cutting food stamps," she said.

Carey Morgan, executive director of the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger, says that kind of increase points to a systemic problem. She says it will never be solved as long as food stamps, now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, is targeted for cuts in Congress.
"You can't make budget decisions on the backs of the poor. You have to take into account that these are human lives, that people need to eat, and they can't wait for the budget crisis to be solved in order to do that."
The report points out that food pantries and emergency kitchens across the city had to turn people away or reduce the amount of food each person received. Morgan says polling data released by the Food Research and Action Center earlier this year shows that 75 percent of Americans think that cutting SNAP is the wrong way to reduce government spending.
Morgan says, as it stands, SNAP benefits only last about three weeks per month for most recipients. That alone, she adds, is an argument against reductions in funding.
"As we see more programs and public benefits getting cut, the force of that is being thrust on the emergency food programs."
Morgan says with donations to those programs down considerably, they're not equipped to feed people for extended periods at a time.
She contends the key to reducing hunger is a re-dedication of resources.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The city of Philadelphia is backing a major program to fill the summer food gap.

Carey Morgan, executive director of the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger, says the summer can be and should be a carefree time, but it can also be a hungry time.

"So many of our children rely on school food services, but what happens when school is over?
Or text "MEAL" to 84700. June 18, 2012 During the regular school year, many low-income students count on eating free or reduced-price meals at school.

Carey Morgan, the executive director of the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger, said that when school is out, kids face higher risks of hunger and malnutrition.

This summer presents an additional challenge, she said, because the school district has had to cut back.
