As one of the largest food banks in the country, the scale of our operations and extent of our network allow Food Bank to provide significant aid to people affected by disasters.

During and after Hurricane Sandy, Food Bank continued to provide food and water to affected communities around the city.  Since that storm, we have built our capacity to reach even the neighborhoods with the least resources.



“We had a lot of damage. I hope I never see anything like Sandy again.”
– Eileen, Hurricane Sandy survivor
