Catholic Charities Collaborates with the Met Council to Feed Hungry New Yorkers
Catholic Charities Community Health and Wellness Services recently teamed up with the Met Council to feed over 150 hungry community members at the We Are Not Afraid Community Resource Center in Manhattan via the Hate Has No Home Here Campaign. Thank you to our wonderful collaborators for allowing us to be a part of this amazing social service initiative.
Since the pandemic began, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens has witnessed a 1,000 percent increase in food requests and has provided much-needed food packages and services at 49 Catholic Charities parish-based food pantries. In total, the agency distributed over $3.4 million in food assistance in 2020. In addition, Catholic Charities witnessed a 37 percent increase in clients in 2020, and continued to deliver mental health counseling, housing services, family services and early childhood education.
