Tops on the wish list: no more hunger

January 9, 2006

In a New Year’s Day column for the Daily News, Albor Ruiz makes several wishes to ease the suffering of New Yorkers. He writes:

No more hunger in New York. No city resident should have to agonize any longer over where his family’s next meal will come from. I wish this year for the mayor to overcome his lack of interest and to take effective measures to put an end to this shame of the city. Inexcusably, despite its wealth, one in seven city York residents face going hungry or lack sufficient access to food. As any of the hundreds of thousands of people who suffer can tell you, hunger does not wait.

And on Queens City Council members’ respective lists of goals for 2006, Eric Gioia mentioned feeding hungry people and enabling food stamps access.
