Through ongoing discussions with our partners at Share Our Strength, Food Network and Cooking Channel are focused on actions we can take, as well as options we can share with our viewers interested in helping to support those on the ground in New York, New Jersey and the entire storm affected region, who are working around the clock to ensure families access to the food they need.
You can help, through direct donations (product donations, volunteering of your time or financial support) to City Harvest, the Food Bank for New York City, and the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. These three organizations, in addition to the American Red Cross, are working day in and day out to ensure the area’s families can access the basic necessities during this trying time. As they ramp up their response to feed those impacted by Hurricane Sandy, we applaud and support their work and encourage our audience to do the same.
One week later, we are optimistic that our Food Network & Cooking Channel offices will reopen sometime in the coming week, though it may take weeks more, before our whole team as well as the entire area affected by the storm is back up and running.
