New York City Food Assistance Collaborative

The New York City Food Assistance Collaborative is a coalition of major players working to alleviate hunger in New York City. Bringing together City Harvest, United Way of New York City, the New York City Human Resources Administration, and the New York State Department of Health Hunger Prevention and Nutrition Assistance Program, the Collaborative is a unified effort to direct emergency food resources equitably and efficiently to residents in need.

With support from the Helmsley Charitable Trust, and in partnership with the Mayor’s Office for Food Policy, the Collaborative is increasing capacity and food supply in the most underserved parts of the city; facilitating information sharing to establish greater coordination among suppliers and emergency food programs; and improving the client experience.
