From research reports to mobilization campaigns, Food Bank’s advocacy work seeks to organize and engage community action as the key to winning the fight against hunger and poverty. Together we can drive policy improvements that will see our city free from hunger.

Tell Congress to Fight Hunger with the American Families Plan

Join Food Bank For New York City to urge your Member of Congress to support anti-poverty priorities in the American Families Plan including:

  • Permanent expansion of the Earned Income and Child Tax Credits, which provide income support for low-income households and fights poverty for families with children.
  • Expanded Summer-EBT to ensure families with children don’t have to skip meals when school is out.
  • Additional investments in emergency food supply and capacity at our nation’s food banks through The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).

Thank you for advocating with Food Bank For New York City to support programs that fight hunger.
