Food Bank For New York City

The Food Bank For New York City was founded in 1983 to coordinate the procurement and distribution of food donations from manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and government agencies to organizations providing free food to the city’s hungry. Today, we are one of the largest food banks in the country and a leading distributor of free fresh produce. To date we have collected, warehoused and distributed more than 676 million pounds of food to the city’s needy. We provide over 67 million pounds of food annually to more than 1,200 nonprofit community food programs – including soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, low-income day care centers, Kids Cafes, and senior, youth and rehabilitation centers – throughout the five boroughs of New York City.
