The Food Bank for New York City
 

 

Resdistributing Food
Feeding those in Need
Reducing Waste


The Food Bank for New York City coordinates the pickup and delivery of food donations from manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and government agencies to organizations that provide free food to the city's hungry.

The Food Bank supplies the food for over 200,000 meals a day for New Yorkers who otherwise would go hungry or not eat enough

Over 61 million pounds of food annually is redistributed to more than 1,200 nonprofit community food programs throughout the five boroughs of New York City .

Most of this food, if not reused, would otherwise be destined for landfill
