September is Hunger Action Month, a time to fight back against food insecurity for our neighbors here in New York City and for communities around the world. First established by Feeding America in 2008, this month is focused not only on raising awareness about the persistent and growing hunger crisis in our country, but on mobilizing that awareness into action.

“We’re all just one big community. We have a very short time on this Earth and I believe that we each have a responsibility to lift each other to be at our absolute best as human beings while we’re here.”

– Leslie Gordon, President & CEO, Food Bank For New York City


“When I arrived for the first time at Food Bank, I never knew how much it would change my life. I’m here every night to pick up dinner. It’s something you depend on.”

– Gregory Bruce, Senior Client & Volunteer

“Since starting to work with Food Bank in 2020, I have been inspired by the dedication, professionalism, and respect of this team. They really care about getting food to our neighbors and you can feel it from every Food Banker you meet.”

– Tracy Morgan, Food Bank Ambassador

“My father, my grandfather, they had a rule.  If somebody comes to you and says that they’re hungry,  you feed them.”

– Chef Chris Molinari, Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen
