I am Lisa Levy, Director of Policy, Advocacy, and Organizing at the New York City Coalition Against Hunger. I am testifying on behalf of the city’s more than 1,100 soup kitchens and food pantries – and the more than 1.4 million New Yorkers who live in households that can’t afford enough food. I want to first thank Chair Dromm and the Education Committee for inviting me here today.
