Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for what we have, to reflect on our own lives, to be with family, and eat a lot of food. A study just released by NYC Coalition against Hunger found that 1 in 6 NYC residents are 'food - insecure,' meaning they cannot afford enough food. Now is a good time to remember that some of the money we pay through our income taxes to the government, both State and Federal, come back to these individuals and families who need extra help.
Unfortunately, since 2013, NYC has seen cuts in food benefits; and soup kitchens and food pantries have seen an increase in need from city residents.
Federal cuts to benefits like SNAP will cause more burden on low-income individuals and families, many of whom we prepare taxes for. Here's one way you can help http://www.foodbanknyc.org/news/individual-food-donations.
