Raising Our Voices
48 New York City Council Members signed a letter to Mayor Bill de Blasio showing their support for $22M in baseline food funding for the Emergency Food Assistance Program (EFAP) in the FY17 New York City budget. During the Executive Budget Hearing for the Human Resources Administration, several Council Members raised questions related to EFAP and continued to show their public support for increased funding.
Community leaders, social service organizations and advocates are raising their powerful voice to call for an increased investment in EFAP in the next City Budget. Dozens of supporters rallied on the steps of City Hall in unity with the City Council in calling for $22 million EFAP funding. Read the story and see photos here.
