To support mobile food pantries in and around Syracuse.
Helping to feed the hungry since 1985, the Food Bank of Central New York (FBCNY) is a multi-faceted organization, working to eliminate hunger by meeting the complex needs of those in communities who are food insecure. For the past 30 years FBCNY has accomplished this through nutritious food distribution, child nutrition programs, outreach, education, and advocacy. Its mobile food pantry (MFP) program delivers food directly to individuals in need and is designed to reach individuals in underserved areas or areas designated as food deserts.
