Most of us will never experience the extreme hunger that millions of Americans face on a daily basis. CAMBA’s Beyond Hunger Emergency Food Pantry helps hundreds of our neighbors get the emergency food they need.
When they come to CAMBA, families, elderly people and those struggling to make it through the day receive emergency food, help applying for benefits, nutrition education, legal services--whatever resources available to help them get back on their feet. For struggling families, the holidays bring uncertainty and anxiety. Parents hope for a little more and wonder if their children will be able to take part in the season's bounty.
At the pantry, we hear "Do you have anything we can put on our table for the holidays?" For seven years now, Bklyner' s "500 Holiday Meals for 500 Families" fundraiser has given families the ability to take part in a rare celebration.
During this year's Thanksgiving week, when the line for meals stretches down the block, we want to make sure that no one leaves without a complete Thanksgiving meal in hand.
Make this Thanksgiving special for struggling New Yorkers and donate to the Beyond Hunger Food Pantry.
