Hunger Action Network
Supporters of a pay increase for restaurant servers want Gov. Andrew Cuomo to overrule a state board opposed to giving tipped workers the standard minimum wage.
Anti-hunger activists launched a statewide campaign urging Sen. Charles Schumer to vote against any farm bill that includes cuts to the food stamp program.
The Hunger Action Network report shows that two-thirds of food pantries and soup kitchens have reported a drop in food donations while the majority of them said they served more people last year.
