Hungry families line up at Yankee Stadium for Thanksgiving, NY Daily News

Hundreds of families started queuing early this morning along the Yankee stadium, hoping to get one of the 1,200 supermarket vouchers worth $25 distributed by the New York Yankees and White Rose.

Several public officials spoke out about hunger in the Bronx. City Councilwoman Annabel Palma brought up a recent study from New York Coalition Against Hunger, asking Congress not to cut fundings for food stamps.

“I’m deeply troubled by the Coalition’s findings that one in four children in New York City go hungry because their families cannot afford to feed them,” Palma said.
