Staten Island Hunger Task Force
Hungry on Staten Island? Don't be! Know where to go
About Us

It is the mission of the Staten Island Hunger Task Force to advocate for the needs of food-insecure families and individuals and not-for-profit emergency feeding programs in order to ensure that hunger needs are met in the borough of Staten Island.

The Hunger Task Force is committed to bringing awareness to the issue of hunger in our borough in order to muster the will of community leaders and members to fight for an end to hunger on Staten Island.

We will support the work of our local emergency feeding programs through education, advocacy, and coordination of services as well as support the city, state, and federal positions that advance both sufficient anti-hunger resources as well as an end to hunger itself.


The Staten Island Hunger Task Force meets the first Monday every other month starting in January, with workshops instead of meetings during the summer.

The next meeting is Monday, March 9, 3-5 p.m., at Project Hospitality, 100 Park Ave. (temporary new location). Phone access will be available.
