About the Food Bank For New York CityThree million New Yorkers have difficulty affording food. The Food Bank For New York City is there with a solution. The Food Bank helps by offering a meal today, resources for a more secure tomorrow and nutrition education to help them lead healthy lifestyles. Food Bank For New York City is the only hunger-relief organization to take this integrated approach. The Food Bank tackles the issues of hunger on three fronts: food distribution, through soup kitchens and food pantries; income support, by connecting those in need to benefits available to them, such as food stamps and earned income tax credits; and nutrition education, helping individuals and families make healthful food choices on limited budgets.
