Brown Paper Bag Movement

Overview :

Every day, millions of Americans lack access to food. 

In 2008: 39.8 million people lived in poverty 

In 2013: 45.3 million people lived in poverty (worldhunger.org)
In New York City alone homelessness has reached its highest level since the Great Depression in 1930.

Many established organizations lack the capacity or resources to meet the needs of the growing population of hungry and homeless individuals in our country. Food pantries and other charitable organizations also often run short on food. Shelter’s often don’t have space or aren’t adequate enough, leaving many in the population to find other places to seek shelter.

Mission:
 
"There are people in the world so hungry that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.” Mahatma Gandhi

Our purpose to help as much as possible where possible. Feed more, so less are hungry. We are an independent group, raising money to feed to homeless in NYC. 100% of all funds go towards purchasing food and hygienic items for the homeless. Any size donation is appreciated and goes a long way.  All food provided is 100% Vegan.
