FIVE BOROUGHS. FEED ALL.
Solving food insecurity across our five boroughs requires more than food alone. And that’s where you come in.
Maximize your impact in the fight against food insecurity across New York City as a member of Food Bank’s Five Boroughs Society, an exclusive group of our most dedicated supporters. Just as the five points of the Liberty crown in our logo represent our five boroughs, the increased support provided by the Five Boroughs Society helps our mission to reach more New Yorkers in need across our city. The Five Boroughs Society comprises three tiers and has access to a variety of exclusive Food Bank opportunities, including special events and behind-the-scenes experiences.
WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS
The impact of your partnership as a Five Boroughs Society member is felt in nearly every community across New York City. Together, we are leading the fight against food insecurity, and we cannot scale back now – not with so many of our neighbors in need.
Your increased commitment will support our ability to:
Provide More Meals
To more New Yorkers in need
You’ll help us provide nourishing meals, with fresh, colorful fruits and vegetables, wholesome proteins, and other culturally appropriate options, for our neighbors who need them across the five boroughs.
Grow Our Mobile Pantry
And pop-up distribution program
You’ll support the expansion of our Pop-Up Distributions and Mobile Pantry Program to bring vital meals and resources directly to the communities that need them most.
Expand Tax & SNAP Services
To provide greater income support
You’ll help provide economic empowerment services in the form of SNAP benefits, income tax prep, and financial coaching for New Yorkers struggling to make ends meet.
Strengthen Our Fleet
By prioritizing access to basic needs
You’ll help ensure our most vulnerable neighbors, from children to seniors, have greater access to the food they need to survive… with dignity.
YOUR OPPORTUNITY: MAKE A DIFFERENCE
1.6 million New York City residents are experiencing food insecurity right now. That’s 1.6 million opportunities to make a real difference in the life of a fellow New Yorker. But don’t just take our word for it…
