supplies healthy food to local churches that are committed to helping people in their community who struggle to provide food for themselves and their families.
1 in 3 children in the Bronx don‘t consistently have enough food. Rosibel, a single mom in the South Bronx, struggles to feed her two sons, three and seven, on food stamps alone. Her youngest son cries endlessly when he can’t have milk. “The food the church gives through Feed New York is a big help. Sometimes the line is around the block. This area needs more of that.”
100 NYC Churches
We found that the most effective way of making sure food gets to people who need it most, is working with local churches. Churches know the needs in their communities and people know that they can turn to churches in times of need.
more than food
Often the needs go beyond hunger. That’s why prayer is important to Feed New York. Our church partners not only provide food, they provide hope through prayer and an opportunity to find a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
