Food insecurity in New York city

Nearly 1.1 million New York City residents are food insecure, and the level of food insecurity in New York City is 12 percent higher than the national average.

With the economic pain of the COVID-19 pandemic, the problem has become even worse for immigrant New Yorkers. Elderly people are at a higher risk for COVID-19, so are staying in where social services can’t always reach them. And many small business owners, day laborers, and domestic workers have experienced a total loss of income which has led to not being able to put food on the table. The holidays, usually a time of celebration, bring even greater awareness and sadness because of these problems.

Gingerbread baked by Unica Bakery and 200 gingerbread house kits assembled by BakeNYC bring Christmas spirit to Robinhood kids on Dec 1, 2021.
