INFANT FORMULA SHORTAGES
Food Bank For New York City powers an extensive member network of over 800 food pantries, soup kitchens, and campus partners across the five boroughs. We make it a point (and a priority) to regularly survey our network to make sure we’re delivering what is needed most to their communities. We are aware of the urgent baby formula shortage, a tremendous crisis for many of the New Yorkers we serve. In FY2021, Food Bank provided over 236,000 pounds of baby formula and baby food to families in need. We are proud to be one of the few hunger relief organizations in the Feeding America network that provides baby formula in substantial amounts and are eager to distribute this essential item as soon as it becomes available.
