NY Food 20/20 Phase One Report

“A lot of people in these communities just don't have email addresses or they don't have internet, so it's like, a lot of times, or even cell phones. So a lot of times when we're signing them up or trying to sign them up, like, ‘Hey, you wanna sign up to get food?’ The only legitimate thing I can take from you is your name, you don't have a number, you don't have an email . . . some people don't even have a legitimate address ‘cause they live in a shelter. So, if there was like a definite hub to where, or if not like you have to fill out an application, you just walk in and there you can fill out the application.”
