Sandy: More on How You Can Help

Food Network
Through ongoing discussions with our partners at Share Our Strength, Food Network & Cooking Channel are focused on actions we can take, as well as viable options we can share with our viewers interested in helping to support those on the ground in New York City, New Jersey and the entire storm affected region, who are working around the clock to ensure families access to the food they need.

You can help, through direct donations (product donations, volunteering your time & financial support) to City Harvest, the Food Bank for New York City, and the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. Each of these organizations offices and their staffs have been directly affected by the storm; City Harvest’s Food Rescue Facility in Long Island City was in Evacuation Zone A and closed on Monday and Tuesday, however, they are operational now and delivered more than 100,000 pounds of food on Wednesday. Food Bank for New York City is continuing to distribute food supplies across the city daily from their Bronx-based warehouse, and will remain a critical source of food for thousands of New Yorkers in the coming days and weeks. The Community Food Bank of New Jersey is working directly with county level Offices of Emergency Management and with other emergency food service centers across the state to ensure families have the food and resources they need as they recover from Sandy.

These three organizations, in addition to The Red Cross, are working day in and day out to ensure the area’s families can access the basic necessities during this trying time. As they ramp up their response to feed those impacted by Hurricane Sandy, we applaud and support their work and encourage you to do the same.

One week later, we are optimistic that our Food Network & Cooking Channel offices will reopen sometime in the coming week. It may take days, weeks more, before our whole team as well as the entire area affected by the storm is back up and running, and we look forward to that time.
