At the warehouse, hard at work packing meals since 6 a.m., Allan speaks with President & CEO Leslie Gordon and Chief Operations & Procurement Executive Bob Silvia to learn how Food Bank is helping aid the 1.2 million New Yorkers facing food security this giving season.
“[GivingTuesday is] an opportunity for all New Yorkers to come together and help each other. Every dollar that you donate today turns into 20 meals being matched by a generous donor,” Gordon said.
