This is one of the Best NY Meals program we have in NYC. Other then 1 complaint I see & hear only good things about this agency. The 1 problem is the salary pid to Ms. Marcia Stein. $285,340 + for an agency that should use all availible funds to help the hungry I think $285,000+ is just way to much. I see other agencies who solicite public money pay their Presidents (or what-ever they call themselves) do it for FAR less money. I find it hard to want to give my hard earned money when I see how much she's paid for a job that many others do for far less. It makes me think 2-3 times before I donate. I guess I would give more or more often if this wasn't such a sticking point.

I have donated before but my complaint is that I'm averaging 2-3 request letters a month. I find it very wastefull to send me repeat letters in the same month. Besides being wastefull I find it annoyingly pressuring. There has to be a way to cut down on the wastefull spending. AND ALL THE LABELS!. Stop with the Labels. If I mail 10 letters a day for the next 50 years I'd STILL have labels left. What would get me to donate would be a card with a Pie chart showing me how much money is spent on helping those in need, operating expenses & salaries. THOSE are the organizations I tend to send my $$ to first.

I'm impressed with the amount that gets put out into the community but I'm a little disturbed about the amount paid to Lucy Cabrera. $249,596 is a little to steep of a salary especially at times like these when every penny donated, 1st priority should be for the homeless & needy. I guess I'd be more comfortable with a salary of $100,000, or even as high as $150K. The extra money saved on her pension should be spent on the ones we donate too. I'll donate this time but it will be my last time unless I notice a chand
