Aftermath of Hurricanes in New York City

Relief efforts continue across the U.S., the Caribbean, and Mexico following the recent storms and earthquakes. We are aware of the impact that these devastating events have on our local communities and families.  As many of you are providing food to families daily, you may be experiencing an increase of clients needing soup kitchen and/or pantry services. We ask and encourage you to reach out to your funders and let them know if you are seeing a rise in need in your area.  You may also communicate with us about any changes to your service levels through the Service Statistics section.  Use the Comments Box to share any news on changes to service levels due to hurricanes. You are on the front lines of this work, so we need to hear from you!
