UMT’s NY Metro team worked with the Food Bank for New York City, sifting through a multitude of items and packaging them for distribution. The team sorted through 6,000 pounds of donations that were given to the food bank.
Food Bank For New York City recognizes 31 years as the city’s major hunger-relief organization working to end food poverty throughout the five boroughs. As one of the country’s largest food banks, its mission is to end hunger in New York City by organizing food, information, and support for community survival and dignity. As the city’s hub for integrated food poverty assistance, Food Bank tackles the hunger issue on three fronts — food distribution, income support, and nutrition education — all strategically guided by its research.
