To end hunger by organizing food, information and support for community survival and dignity
DID YOU KNOW that approximately 1.3 million New Yorkers rely on emergency food?
Helping to fight hunger in NYC, the Food Bank For New York City is the major provider of food to more than 1,000 food assistance programs throughout the five boroughs — including soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, low-income daycare centers, Kids Cafes and senior, youth and rehabilitation centers. The Food Bank distributes 68 million pounds of food including fresh produce, meat and fish to our network of food assistance programs every year.
The Food Bank and its subsidiary, FoodChange, also offers a wide range of services and resources that enable our network of programs to build capacity and improve efficiency. We regularly conduct research about hunger in NYC, play an active role in public policy issues at the city, state and national levels and serve as an information resource center for our network of programs, elected officials, government agencies, the media and the public.
