New York City is one of the richest cities in the world, but poverty is all around us. Food insecurity (not knowing where your next meal is coming from or how you will afford to feed your family each week) affects approximately 1.4 million people in the five boroughs, and continues to spike as food prices steadily rise. It predominately affects women, children, seniors, the working poor and people with disabilities. Students for Service is addressing this issue by working with local food pantries, soup kitchens, and hunger outreach organizations to alleviate food insecurity and to promote awareness of and access to proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.
