BROOKLYN - The latest findings from a survey conducted by the New York City Coalition Against Hunger show that many of the 1.4 million New Yorkers who don't have sufficient food live in Brooklyn.

The survey revealed that one in seven Brooklyn residents had insufficient food between 2010 and 2012. It also showed that one in eight residents lived in households with insufficient food.

Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio stopped by Campaign Against Hunger in Bed-Stuy on Fulton Street Wednesday to spotlight the issue.

He and his wife Chirlane McCray gave out all the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal to those in need.
