Hunger in Westchester
Who Is Hungry in Our Community?
You may be surprised to learn that children and adults from all walks of life go hungry, in every community across Westchester. Your neighbor, your child’s classmate, or even your coworker may struggle to get enough to eat.
Hunger is here — right where we live. Although many in Westchester are wealthy, wages remain low and stagnant for the working poor. And with fixed expenses like rent and childcare on the rise, groceries are often the first line slashed in a household’s budget.
