"This place basically saved my life. They've given me every piece of clothing that I’m wearing right now. And sometimes this is my only meal of the day."

—Part of the Solution


Food is the most basic human need. Yet nearly a third of New Yorkers, roughly 2.8 million people, have trouble putting food on the table each day, which means half a million children go to sleep hungry each night. The consequences are painfully clear: without nutritious food, children can't grow up to be strong and active and adults can't stay healthy and working.


Last year, Robin Hood's support made it possible for our partners to provide more than 14 million meals to hungry New Yorkers. Our investments also helped supply more than 1,000 soup kitchens and pantries that serve over 200,000 New Yorkers. Through our Single Stop locations at food pantries, we connected more than 11,000 to important public-benefit programs.
