NYCCAH Calls Out the Po$t
In a letter to the editor published in today's New York Post, NYCCAH executive director Joel Berg called the paper to task for its error-riddled, misleading editorial on the supposed "non-existence" of hunger in the city.
The New York City Coalition Against Hunger represents New York City’s over 1,200 soup kitchens and food pantries and the 1.3 million low income New Yorkers who are forced to use them. The Coalition works to meet the immediate food needs of low-income New Yorkers and enact innovative solutions to help them move “beyond the soup kitchen” to self-sufficiency.
