Cause - Hunger & Homelessness

A general lack of awareness, the perception of Westchester as a wealthy county and the stigma attached to seeking help are among the driving forces of the county's "hidden hunger" problem.
Leslie Gordon, former president and CEO of the Food Bank for Westchester (now Feeding Westchester), said "200,000 people living in the county — 29 percent of them children — 'don't really know when their next meal will be, or what that meal will be.'"

From the Spring of 2015 to 2018, the role of the Volunteer Hunger Relief Corps task force was to combat hunger in Westchester and Rockland counties by providing ongoing volunteer support and volunteer management resources to over a dozen local Hunger Relief Organizations.
The Volunteer Hunger Relief Corps was made possible by a Volunteer Generation Fund grant from the New York State Commission on National and Community Service. Thank you to all who served as Hunger Relief Corps Members.
