Volunteer Profile: Rehana Khan

Rehana Khan served with Food Bank as an Event Lead during the 2021 New York City Wine & Food Festival (NYCWFF). 

Why is Food Bank’s mission important to you?

I’ve worked with many people who have struggled with food insecurity and rely on pantries, including the parents of my students. It’s important that we all understand that food is a necessity, not a privilege.” 

What was your most memorable moment while serving with Food Bank?

Volunteering at NYCWFF has given me an opportunity to help others contribute to Food Bank’s mission. This experience has taught me a lot about what donating my time as an Event Lead can do for New Yorkers in need. 

Tell us about a meal that is special to you and your family.

Any meal that we eat together (usually dinner) is special because I'm grateful to have that interaction. It's what bonds us as a united front against any hardships that come our way. 

Who inspires you to serve?

The human spirit. My sense of justice to help others and their smiles as payment is what keeps me going and gives me life.
