Winning the Fight Against Hunger

Involvement in and commitment to the communities it serves is a long-time tradition at Berkeley College. This holiday season, that tradition continues. As part of Berkeley’s partnership with the New York Jets, the College joined with Food Bank for New York City to tackle hunger.

Successful Drives to Feed the Hungry

Joseph Charleman and the NY JetsAfter holding Food Drives on each Berkeley College campus in New York and New Jersey, more than 250 food items were donated by students and staff for those in need. Then, on Tuesday, November 20, a team of Berkeley students, faculty, and staff worked alongside New York Jets players to serve more than 300 guests at Food Bank for New York City.

Working Together for the Cause

In addition, a check for $15,000 was presented to Food Bank for New York City from Berkeley College and the New York Jets Foundation to help the Food Bank continue to fight the battle against hunger.

A Long Tradition of Service

Berkeley College Knights and the NY JetsThrough Berkeley Cares and initiatives such as Community Service Week, Berkeley College addresses important social, economic, and environmental issues in the communities it serves. Each year, faculty, staff, students, and alumni provide thousands of hands-on volunteer hours, supporting organizations in the critical areas of food, health, shelter, and student success.
