With the pandemic’s full effects at an all-time high, Food Bank For NYC member, RIVER FUND, assembled for yet another food distribution—serving thousands in need. Each week, Food Bank For NYC and RIVER FUND ensure multiple locations across New York City are provisioned with critical staples and essentials. Lines often start at 2AM for individuals and families who need to secure their supplies for the week, many of whom have never experienced dependence on food pantries before being affected by this pandemic. Additionally, households that were already struggling to make ends meet, are now enduring a worsening economy and deteriorating life circumstances. Hence, the efforts of these organizations have gone from supportive to lifesaving for many. Dozens of volunteers and donors come together in acts of community and care—to help those experiencing times of great hardship to stay afloat. Through the decades, poverty has been, and continues to be a complicated issue based in economic inequality. RIVER FUND has been a nimble and purpose-driven organization, embodying immediate support while bringing humanity, tolerance and empathy to those they serve.

Photographer Rowan Papier came to document the power and necessity and of this great work, and give a voice to a wide range of people who are affected by the hunger crisis here in New York City.
