Hunger in New York City

New York City is one of the wealthiest cities in the United States.  However, not all New Yorkers benefit from the city’s affluence;

The startling socio-economic disparity between the haves and have nots in New York City grows daily (http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/uptown/central-harlem...).

The New York Daily News recently revealed; “Nearly one in five New Yorkers, 1.4 million people, now rely on a patchwork network of 1,000 emergency food programs across the city to eat (http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/1-5-new-yorkers-rely-...).”

While many charitable organizations work around the clock to provide free food and services to New York City’s residents, they need more help than ever.
