A recent report by the Food Bank of New York City states that Brooklyn has the highest level of food insecurity in the city. Seven of the top ten community districts with high levels of food insecurity were found in Central and East Brooklyn, including Brownsville, Bedford Stuyvesant, East Flatbush, East New York, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights and Flatbush.

In effort to address this growing need, Kingsbrook will continue to collaborate with community partners to increase access to efforts of this nature. For more inmformation call our Community Information Line at 718-604-5062.
