At Food Bank, we believe that our greatest resources are human! Nowhere is that seen better than in the faces of the individuals giving shape and texture to our mission on a daily basis: our employees…a group often referred to as “Food Bankers.” We are an intentionally diverse team of talent, perspectives and personalities bonded by a true belief and passion that NO ONE should be hungry in our country and certainly not in what we believe to be the world’s greatest city. Successful Food Bankers are New Yorkers who focus their energies on finding innovative and sustainable ways to serve our neighbors in collaboration and solidarity with our network of partners, members and supporters.
