Camden Women Raise Hunger Awareness through Photo Project and Exhibit

Drexel’s “Witnesses to Hunger” Project Debuts in Camden with Support from Campbell Soup Company’s Healthy Communities Program

PHILADELPHIA (June 13, 2013) – The bleakest headlines about Camden, N.J. often name the city one of America’s most impoverished and most dangerous – a hopeless place. But in this small city, 10 women have taken up digital cameras to share their stories about raising children there.

These 10 women are the newest members of the “Witnesses to Hunger” community-based participatory research and advocacy project based at the Drexel University School of Public Health and they hope to combat childhood hunger by raising awareness about food insecurity in Camden.
