Carey Morgan, Executive Director 215-430-0555 ext. 100, cmorgan@hungercoalition.org 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.

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.
