Feeding Our Neighbors

IMG_1186As part of a community wide volunteer day, hundreds of young professionals, families and seniors took action against hunger in New York City. Volunteers from Met Council, UJA-Federation of New York, Engage and Repair the World learned about the prevalence of hunger in the City and participated in various projects to feed our neighbors. The day’s activities included: prepping dinner for low-income families, assembling child-friendly snacks and creating re-usable grocery bags.

Feeding Our Neighbors: An Interfaith Response began in 2012 and is a joint effort to raise food and funds to replenish food pantries and soup kitchens that feed hungry neighbors. Together, Catholic Charities, UJA-Federation, and the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies hope to maximize their combined efforts to distribute 1 million meals to feed the hungry across New York.
