Food Donation New York

According to a study: 1 out of every 5 people are dependent on soup kitchens or food donations in New York City, 1 out of every 4 children in NYC may not get any food, and 1 out of every 5 adults rely on food donations in NYC to curb their hunger.

Nearly 1.2 million people in New York lack food on their table every year.

Many workers in New York didn't have enough income to pay the cost of living. Nearly 2.5 million men, women, and children couldn't afford to cover basic needs of life, like food, housing, transportation and childcare.

The population of people in New York with food insecurities amount to more than the total population of San Francisco, California.

In 2018, 25 million people went to soup kitchens and food banks and relied on food donation in New York.

Hunger and homelessness are one of the main issues in New York. The homeless strive to get food on their table, let alone nutritious food.

The persistent unavailability of food has adverse effects on the homeless that can diminish their abilities to accomplish everyday tasks, which won't improve their life.

Over the past years, Urban Food Alliance is striving to alleviate the hunger crisis by providing food for the homeless in NYC and other local communities.

It has become possible through the generous donations we have received from members of our community.

You can be a part and join us to eradicate hunger and provide food for the homeless in NYC and work towards long term goals for hunger deprivation.
