Emergency Food Network


The Food Bank’s emergency food network reports include the NYC Hunger Safety Net report series, which is designed to track trends in hunger and create research-based solutions to hunger throughout the five boroughs. The reports include findings on the population relying on emergency food programs (EFPs) including soup kitchens and food pantries; the operations, resources and services of EFPs; and residents' access to food assistance.

Hunger's New Normal: Redefining Emergency in Post-Recession New York City
Released October 30, 2013, on the eve of unprecedented cuts to SNAP (food stamp) benefits, Hunger's New Normal: Redefining Emergency in Post-Recession New York City is the second report based on the Hunger Safety Net 2011-12 data. Interviews with more than 1,200 participants at food pantries and soup kitchens throughout the five boroughs provide the source material for this detailed look into who relies on emergency food in New York City, and offer evidence that changes in the economy since the Great Recession have increased need even among groups not conventionally considered disadvantaged.
