The Food Bank for New York City kicked off “Hunger Action Month” to raise awareness about food insecurity.
As New Yorkers continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, Food Bank For New York City looks toward supporting the future and comeback of the city, and assisting those citizens, workers, and businesses most affected by the economic fallout of the pandemic.
The theme of the five-borough tour is “One Mission. Five Boroughs. Feed All.” Food Bank will work alongside corporate partners including iHeart Radio, Disney and Anthem, and local partners including the New York Yankees, New York Giants, New York Liberty, Lincoln Center, Elmhurst Hospital, and public schools across the city.
During Hunger Action Month, Food Bank will bring awareness of the pandemic’s impact on food insecurity in New York City, assist in revitalizing the restaurant industry, and serve the city’s populations in need. Food will be distributed Sept. 24 at Yankee Stadium and Sept. 30 at PS 57 Hubert Humphrey in Staten Island.
