Catholic Charities Is Here for You

Children illustrate how to help hungry New Yorkers in Rockland County

 

September is Hunger Action Month, a time when we take action against hunger together. 

The number of hungry New Yorkers is shocking.

1.4 million people depend on food pantries and soup kitchens in New Yorkt o survive!  

That’s one out of every five New Yorkers including:

  • Older women
  • Working families 
  • Veterans 
  • Worst of all, children.

Catholic Charities is fighting back.  

  • We partner with programs to provide more than 6.5 million meals to hungry New Yorkers each year.  
  • And we connect hungry people to the extra support they need so they will not go hungry again.

Please join us this month, spread the word and take action against hunger.

Check out this recent facebook post by Catholic Charities Community Services of Rockland County to feel inspired.
