Food Bank for NYC is calling on residents to help others by donating food
Soup kitchens, food pantries and shelters across the city are asking for donations.
The Food Bank of NYC is relying on residents to donate food in order to prevent a shortage similar to last year. Just a year ago, the Hunts Point Food Bank's shelves were empty.
To help gain donations, the organization is kicking off the NYC Bank to Bank Partnership. There will be donation boxes set up at Fleet and Washington Mutual Banks in the Bronx.
Even if people donate just one can of food, officials at the food bank say it makes a difference.
