Hungry on Staten Island? Don't be! Know where to go
It is the mission of the Staten Island Hunger Task
Force to advocate for the needs of food-insecure families and individuals
and not-for-profit emergency feeding programs in order to ensure that hunger
needs are met in the borough of Staten Island.
The Hunger Task Force is committed to bringing awareness
to the issue of hunger in our borough in order to muster the will of community
leaders and members to fight for an end to hunger on Staten Island.
We will support the work of our local emergency feeding
programs through education, advocacy, and coordination of services as well
as support the city, state, and federal positions that advance both sufficient
anti-hunger resources as well as an end to hunger itself.
The Staten Island Hunger Task Force meets the first Monday every other month starting in January, with a break during the summer.
Wagner College hosted the Hunger Task Force's third legislative breakfast on Friday, March 14, and drew at least 80 people from pantries, organizations, and legislative offices to listen to keynote speaker Dominique Jones, chief program officer for Food Bank NYC.
