The Original SoupMan Partners With World Hunger Year and New York City Coalition Against Hunger
Said Joel Berg, Executive Director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger: "As our Annual Survey showed, emergency food providers throughout the City are in desperate need of food and agencies certainly appreciate the Original SoupMan's help in these difficult economic times. Given that 1.3 million New Yorkers are forced to use emergency feeding programs every year, however, we continue to stress that the federal government is the only entity capable of ending hunger. Citizens can and must push President Obama and his administration to fulfill their campaign promises to end child hunger by 2015 as a down payment on ending all domestic hunger. We cannot let 'yes, we can' become 'yes, we could have.'
