$545.00 raised for $500.00 goal
Help Ornella Trattoria Italiana Feed Our Community
Organized by Giovanni Viterale
Ornella's is a family owned business. Our community has supported us for 10 years with love and loyalty. Now it is our turn. We must support our local families facing food insecurities during this time.
For every $500 raised, Queens Together will match another $500. Ornella's will prepare meals for local families in need. Please join us in supporting our communities and let's bring Queens together .
What is Queens Together?
Queens Together is a non-profit association of independent restaurants supporting each other in business and feeding communities during crises. Their motto is “One Borough. One Voice.”
During the COVID-19 crisis they are building a bridge that connects local restaurants with food relief efforts in their communities. The dollars raised allow restaurants to make real money, pay their workers, fuel the local economy and most importantly do what restaurants do best: care for others with food. That's because the meals and groceries they fund, prepared by these local chefs, go to neighbors facing food and economic insecurity. The work benefits the full circle of the community: from food businesses to those in need to those who donate. This mission will continue beyond COVID-19 and become a tool for future needs and projects.
