Witnesses to Hunger Photo Gallery Opens at The EAT Cafe

Philadelphia members of Witnesses to Hunger have partnered with The EAT Cafe to present their photography to the greater Philadelphia community. For those who have never seen the exhibit, this presents the perfect opportunity to experience it while supporting The EAT Cafe, a pay-what-you-can restaurant in West Philadelphia.

The exhibit runs from February 21, 2017 through March 20, 2017. The EAT Cafe is open Wednesday through Saturday, 4:30p.m.-8:30p.m. Visitors are invited to peruse the gallery while they await seating or after they have finished dining.

Members of Witnesses to Hunger (Philadelphia): (L-R) Myra Y., Imani S., Sherita M., and Angela S.

At the opening reception, Malcolm Kenyatta (Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce) provided inspiring words and praise of the work of Witnesses to Hunger. Members Myra Y. and Angela S. shared a few words and program Manager, Michelle Taylor, encouraged the community to become involved in the work of Witnesses– ending hunger and poverty.

Witnesses to Hunger doesn’t want those burdens to be carried secretly. The Center for Hunger-Free Communities program invites mothers and caregivers experiencing hunger and poverty to be their own advocates for policy change.

One result of that work is a traveling photo exhibit currently on display at West Philadelphia’s EAT Café, the nonprofit, pay-what-you-can restaurant also coordinated by the Center for Hunger-Free Communities.

The exhibit features photographs taken by Witnesses to Hunger program participants alongside quotes of theirs discussing the photos or their personal struggles to feed their families.”
