Charities Supported by NYCWFF

Charities benefiting by the NYCWFF are the Food Bank for New York City and No Kid Hungry.

The No Kid Hungry is a campaign by the Share Our Strength, an anti-hunger  organization. The No Kid Hungry website notes that one in five children go hungry.

The roots for the Food Bank for New York City go back to 1983  when it was established to help the growing need of  people in need of emergency food assistance. Over the years NYCWFF has continued to grow. In 2008 it was the first business to be awarded a second Hero Award  from Robin Hood. Be sure to visit the Food Bank website for more information.
