Thank You for Making the 5 Borough Challenge a Success!

The 5-Borough Challenge has officially come to a close and we raised an incredible 1.2 MILLION meals for our neighbors! This accomplishment wouldn’t have been possible without friends like you who showed your borough pride and stood up for New Yorkers in need. We here at Food Bank have just one thing to say… THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

With the help of a generous match from Bank of America, and your tireless support, we were able to surpass our original fundraising goal of $200,000 – allowing us to do even more for communities hard-hit by the economic fallout of COVID-19. We’d also like to thank our media partners at Hot97 and WBLS for their support, as well as all of the New York celebrities who cheered their boroughs on, like Desus Nice, Drea de Matteo, Alyssa Milano, Nia Long, Tamron Hall, and Bella Hadid.

Thank you again for joining us to support New Yorkers in need. Sign up for our newsletter to stay connected to our fight against hunger. And remember – while the path ahead may be rocky, New Yorkers are always strongest when we walk together.
