Testimony by Joel Berg to City Council General Welfare Oversight on Hunger Jan 25, 2017


I, Joel Berg, Chief Executive Officer of Hunger Free America, am testifying on behalf of the approximately 1.4 million New Yorkers who live in households that can’t afford enough food. Formerly called the New York City Coalition Against Hunger, Hunger Free America changed its name in 2016 to better reflect the broad scope of our national work. This was also accompanied with intensifying our local efforts under the new name, Hunger Free New York City. I want to first thank Chairman Levin for his work on behalf of people in need as well as to the Committee for inviting me to testify here today.
