Red Cross Partner, Food Bank For New York City, Gives Sandy Update
Dominque Jones, chief program officer at Food Bank For New York City, spoke to American Red Cross case managers on Friday, Jan. 10, 2014. The presentation included information about how Food Bank For New York City is using funding from the Red Cross to feed vulnerable populations, particularly senior citizens, affected by Superstorm Sandy. Case managers learned how to refer people for assistance.
Last year, the Red Cross awarded a $4.48 million grant to Food Bank For New York City to support emergency feeding services for people affected by Sandy throughout the five boroughs and a $500,000 grant to support recovery services for senior citizens affected by Sandy in parts of Staten Island, Brooklyn and Queens.
