Meet Gil Llavet: The GOAT of 'Food Bank for New York City'

At the Food Bank For New York City warehouse in the Bronx, Gil Llavet is known as the GOAT.

"You look up a picture of Food Bank, you gotta see a picture of Gil. Gil is God," said one employee. 

Gil has been with Food Bank for 37 of their 40 years.  This hi-lo operator comes to work at 5:30 every morning and sometimes wants to stay past his normal shift – all because he knows the people of this city are relying on guys like him.

Gil grew up in Puerto Rico with his mom, a brother, and one sister. He remembers the days when his family couldn’t afford food. Going to sleep hungry. Not knowing where or when his next meal would come.
