The Coalition, founded in 2014, is an unincorporated non-profit association focused on reducing hunger in Easton and the Greater Lehigh Valley. We provide a forum to plan activities, events, programs and workshops to achieve its mission. Advocacy, education, community health, public awareness, food access and other related issues may be addressed. EHC intends to be a catalyst for the implementation of any programs which serve its mission.
Morning Conversation on FOOD is a free, public, monthly program hosted by the Coalition and is held at the Easton Public Market on the third Wednesday of each month. Topics discussed are relevant to the food system and changes needed to ensure that hunger is eliminated from the community. An Annual Meeting is held in May of each year which features speakers on food activism topics.
A Food Recovery volunteer group which is also part of the Lehigh Valley Food Policy Council’s Food Access Working Group, rescues edible local produce and food products and distributes those items through the existing emergency food system (pantries, free meal centers and shelters). Volunteers are needed to help with food recovery.
More information is available on our website, including membership information. The Coalition accepts donations and membership dues, all of which go towards funding the activities required to eliminate hunger and its underlying causes. Find us at www.eastonhungercoalition.org.
