The Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger served over 30,000 individuals in both May and June, showing an astounding  surge in demand for our services. Federal cuts to SNAP (food stamps) benefits will go into effect in November. This will likely result in even greater numbers of visitors to pantries and soup kitchens across the city, as needy families seek to make up the difference. You can read more about the cuts to SNAP and the effects they will have on BSCAH and the hungry New Yorkers we serve: http://www.bkbureau.org/2013/07/01/brooklyn-pantries-brace-for-food-aid-cuts/.
