Today, on Saturday, June 20th, 2020, Tracey Morgan, and others assisted Food Bank For New York City to distribute gift bags in honor of all of the fathers struggling during this difficult time.
Gift bags were included with hygiene items from toothpaste, messenger bags, hot sauce, masks, snacks, and more. These items were meant to bring joy to New Yorks families from Harlem to Hollis in need on this special day.
The items were generously donated by Food Bank’s partners, including Good Plus Foundation, Colgate, Fuego Box, and Levain Bakery.
For 36 years, Food Bank For New York City has been the city’s major hunger-relief organization working to end hunger throughout the five boroughs. Nearly one in five New Yorkers relies on Food Bank for food and other resources. Food Bank takes a strategic, multifaceted approach that provides meals and builds capacity in the neediest communities while raising awareness and engagement among all New Yorkers.
Through its network of more than 1,000 charities and schools citywide, Food Bank provides food for more than 61 million free meals per year for New Yorkers in need.
Food Bank For New York City’s income support services, including food stamps (also known as SNAP) and free tax assistance for the working poor, put more than $110 million each year into the pockets of New Yorkers, helping them to afford food and achieve greater dignity and independence.
Food Bank’s nutrition education programs and services empower more than 50,000 children, teens and adults to sustain a healthy diet and active lifestyle on a limited budget. Working toward long-term solutions to food poverty, Food Bank develops policy and conducts research to inform community and government efforts.
