SEASON OF GIVING 2017

 

Berkeley College and New York Jets Partner with
FoodBank for New York City to Tackle Hunger during Holiday Season


 

Berkeley College

Berkeley College and the New York Jets partnered with the Food Bank for New York City to tackle hunger this holiday season with a donation of $20,000 to the hunger-relief organization.

 

Following the check presentation on November 21, 2017, more than 15 Berkeley College students and officials helped Jets players and Jets Legends prepare and serve a pre-Thanksgiving dinner to more than 400 guests at Food Bank for New York City Community Kitchen in Harlem, NY.

 

The donation will provide 200,000 meals for New Yorkers in need this holiday season, a time of year that proves especially difficult for the 1.5 million New Yorkers – including 339,000 children – who struggle with hunger year-round.
