Feeding Our Neighbors 2021

Between the last Sunday of January and first Sunday of February, Timothy Cardinal Dolan calls on non-Catholics and Catholics alike to feed our neighbors by replenishing food pantries and soup kitchens that so many families rely on to survive.

"We need to feed the hungry in the name of Jesus, and that is a high honor and call. 
We need to make sure that none of our neighbors are ever turned away
when they look to the church for help."

- Timothy Cardinal Dolan


There is just one goal for Feeding Our Neighbors: to ensure that no hungry neighbor is turned away.

Sponsored by Catholic organizations throughout the Archdiocese of New York and managed by Catholic Charities, 100% of contributions to the campaign support local food pantries that serve New Yorkers, non-Catholics and Catholics alike.

The Challenge of Feeding the Hungry

Feeding Our Neighbors is a united effort to fight hunger. Organizational participants in Feeding Our Neighbors include all Archdiocesan Catholic schools, local parishes, the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO), the Archdiocesan Catechetical Office, the Office of Youth Ministry and the Catholic Charities Federation.

  • The cost of living In New York is high: the cost of an affordable meal within the Archdiocese of New York is nearly 9% higher than the national average. 
  • More than 1.7 million people in New York City live in poverty.
  • More than 20% of our New York City neighbors have difficulty affording food. 
  • Families with children fare worse: 39% of parents and children in New York City have difficulty affording food.
  • Nearly 325,000 of children throughout the 10 counties the Archdiocese of New York do not have enough to eat.
  • This year, we’ll be leveraging our collective reach and already expansive networks for an even greater impact
