Sept 30, 2014

Update: On Tuesday, September 30th, 2014, Mayor De Blasio signed an executive order that significantly expanded New York City's living wage law, covering thousands of previously exempt workers and raising the hourly wage itself, to $13.13 from $11.90, for workers who do not receive benefits. Increasing the number of New Yorkers covered by the living wage law is a major victory for those who fought for the Fair Wage for New Yorkers Act, for workers, and for people who believe that full time workers should earn enough to survive.

NYS Assembly 55th District Candidate Forum On September 4th, Neighbors Together co-hosted a candidate forum for New York State's 55th Assembly District, and invited candidates to speak on the issues of hunger and poverty. We had a great turnout. Attendees were able to learn more about each candidate and take that information to the polls for the primary.

This year, the Thirty Thanksgivings fundraising campaign sponsored the 30 lunches and dinner after Thanksgiving! Thank you to all who participated and provided a warm meal during some of the coldest months of the year!

The Thanksgiving meal is probably the biggest event of the year onsite for Neighbors Together! Lots of food and good cheer!

For the first time in the 30 years that Neighbors Together has existed, we hosted a Gala featuring the talents of a dozen of NYC's top restaurants and honoring the documentary "A Place at the Table", which Lori Silverbush and Kristi Jacobson created. The movie concerns the crisis of hunger in this country and is worth watching! You can see photos from the gala here.

Neighbors Together was on site at Brandi Carlile's Beacon Theatre show to raise awareness and funds for our work to fight hunger! Special thanks to WhyHunger and Brandi's Looking Out Foundation for this exciting opportunity. Thanks to all involved for a really fun evening of great music!

Feb 27, 2013:

We are back from a fantastic trip to Albany yesterday with 30 of our members! Together they covered 15 legislative meetings, raising one collective voice to protect low-income New Yorkers in the state budget process.

We are advocating for improved public policies that directly impact hunger and poverty: increasing the state minimum wage, creating living wage jobs, expanding access to affordable housing, increasing funds for emergency food programs, and more.

We'd like to thank three-time all star and two-time Olympic gold medalist Deron Williams, the point guard for the Brooklyn Nets, for coming to Neighbors Together today, serving a meal with his beautiful family, and presenting a check from his Point of Hope foundation to the Food Bank of New York!

Thank you to the Food Bank for selecting Neighbors Together as the site for this wonderful event!
