Soup kitchens and food pantries are working overtime to feed anyone in need. We spoke with Joel Berg of NYC Coalition Against Hunger about the challenges of organizing volunteers and peer organizations without electricity or communication. Along with FEMA, the NYC Coalition to End Hunger will remain a constant presence in NYC.

 

“It is tough times. They are getting an influx of people who need food- both the regular low-income people who normally need extra help, but also other people who just don’t have access to electricity or stores.” –Joel Berg of NYC Coalition Against Hunger
