Everyone Talks About How Children are Hungry; Find Out How We Walk the Walk

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

One  out of four children do not get enough to eat, reports Feeding America.  Hunger is growing in New York City.

Catholic Charities Feeding Our Neighbors campaign is fighting back, partnering with parishes, schools, organizations and individuals to restock food pantries and feed those in need

Last week, Epiphany School students, staff, faculty and board of trustee members delivered enough food to feed 5,000 families.  Located in Manhattan, the school accumulated this significant donation through Epiphany’s Walk the Walk Catholic Charities Feeding Our Neighbors food drive campaign on October 20.  At the event, 350 families joined in a 2.5-mile walk along the East River Promenade to raise funds.

And while hunger, unfortunately, is growing, our commitment to fight it has grown as well.  Last year, the Walk collected food which resulted in 4,000 meals.  This year, the Walk increased its collection by over 25%.

There is just one goal for Feeding Our Neighbors, that New Yorkers answer the call to feed those who are suffering in our community.

Please help us feed our neighbors.
