Report: Help Immigrants Stamp Out Hunger
Yesterday members of the anti-hunger group FoodChange released the results of a 2006 report on immigrant access to food stamps in Queens, according to the Queens Ledger and Queens Tribune. They were joined by City councilmembers John Liu and Eric Gioia, as well as Council Speaker Christine Quinn. Stated Gioia, "Sometimes in the council we deal with problems that are so complex that we have no idea where to begin. That's not the case with this issue. We know the solution, and we can end hunger in New York."
