hunger action month
Throughout the month of September, we commemorate Hunger Action Month and recognize the vastly disproportionate health, economic, and social impacts of the pandemic on our most vulnerable neighbors, including elderly seniors and children. Food is often the first and most prominent need in times of crisis, and we have mobilized to serve those most affected within our communities. The struggle is far from over in New York.
you can help
We ask that you engage however you can in the fight against hunger. Here’s how you can take action this month:
Have you considered giving monetary donations to help support a NYC nonprofit? Hunger Action Month is the perfect time to do so, with donations going to help TCAH purchase the healthy food needed to keep vulnerable adults, children, and seniors from going hungry. No one should go hungry, especially during Hunger Action Month. By donating to TCAH, corporations not only advance the greater good by building food security but also demonstrate the company’s commitment to making New York City a better and more equitable place.
The 2023 Farm Bill is on the horizon, and it’s our chance to make a difference. Let’s come together and urge lawmakers to ensure full funding for critical federal nutrition programs like TEFAP (The Emergency Food Assistance Program) and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program).
Your advocacy can make an impact on the lives of countless individuals and families who rely on these essential programs. Join us in the fight for a healthier, more food-secure future. Together, we can create positive change in our communities.
TCAH has an urgent need for volunteers at our food pantry at 2004 Fulton Street and our food distribution center (FDC) at 744 Berriman Street in Brooklyn. Pantry volunteers primarily assist clients with selecting food items in its market area. FDC volunteers help staff with completing online customer orders, which are picked up by DoorDash employees. Corporate and community groups and individuals are encouraged to apply. Please contact Michael, our Volunteer Resource Manager, with any questions or concerns at extension 115 or email@example.com.
Have you previously donated to your church or local food bank? Most know that food banks accept canned food donations and non-perishable items, such as canned vegetables or dried beans. But what about other items like fresh fruits and vegetables or homemade baked goods? We have you covered! Click the button below to review a helpful guide. Please note, non-perishable food items can be delivered to: 2004 Fulton St., Brooklyn, NY 11233. If you have questions about hosting a food drive for TCAH, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
