Winning the Fight Against Hunger



Berkeley College and the NY Jets at the Food Bank of New York City


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 is working with Food Bank for New York City to tackle hunger this holiday season. Each Berkeley College campus in New York and New Jersey is holding a Food Drive, encouraging students and staff to donate food items for those in need.

Campuses compete for the cause

The Berkeley campus collecting the most food items will send a team of participants to serve at the Food Bank community kitchen alongside players from the New York Jets on Tuesday, November 20. All of the food items collected from each of the campuses will be donated to the pantry on this day as well. Berkeley students also joined Jets players last Thanksgiving season in an effort to tackle hunger and make a difference. 

A long tradition of service

Through 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.
