Food Bank For New York City’s 2022 Pride Month theme is #ProudlyFed. For us, this means we not only serve the estimated 1 in 5 LGBTQ+ New Yorkers struggling to put food on the table, but that we do it with joy, love, and pride. 

There is no room for hate on our pantry line – we feed all New Yorkers, no matter who they are or how they identify. To learn more about our approach (and see how YOU can help us fight back against hunger in the LGBTQ+ community) keep reading below.
