Brooklyn Historical Society Exhibit

Posted: March 20, 2016

If you’re a New Yorker or plan on visiting sometime this year, I highly recommend you check out the Brooklyn Historical Society’s “Hidden in Plain Sight: Portraits of Hunger in NYC” exhibit (through Nov 13). Brooklyn-based photojournalist Joey O'Loughlin spent two years documenting soup kitchens and food pantries throughout the city. Her images tell a powerful story of just how widespread hunger is in the city. Some stats:
  • Among the 1.4 million New Yorkers who rely on soup kitchens and food pantries, women, children, seniors, the working poor and people with disabilities make up the largest groups. 
  • Almost two thirds of New Yorkers visiting food pantries are women (64 percent). 
  • One in five children in New York City relies on emergency food.
  • Approximately 1 in 6 elderly New Yorkers (nearly 154,000) receives food from soup kitchens and food pantries. 
  • More than 1 in 5 (21 percent) NYC residents standing in line at soup kitchens and food pantries are employed; among them, 57 percent work full time.

We can help!
