NYC Hunger Experience


The Food Bank's NYC Hunger Experience report series, formerly titled NYC Hunger View, tracks annual trends in difficulty affording food among New York City residents. Socio-demographic findings identify which populations throughout the five boroughs are having the greatest difficulty affording food in order to inform policy solutions and address the problem of food poverty.

NYC Hunger Experience 2012:  One City, Two Realities
 In 2012, 32 percent of New York City residents (approximately 2.6 million people) reported difficulty affording needed food, a drop of 3 percentage points from 2011, when 35 percent reported difficulty. Although these findings give some cause for optimism, they mask the harsh and very different reality in which New York City’s most vulnerable residents find themselves. This year’s NYC Hunger Experience report reveals a tale of two cities, wherein the struggles of low-income and unemployed New Yorkers to keep food on the table have intensified even as the difficulties of those better off continue to improve.
