$400.00 raised for $2,500.00 goal
Help Brighter Bites deliver produce to our neighbors.
Organized by Jonathan Forgash
Friends, we need your help. Every Tuesday, the Brighter Bites initiative provides deliveries of fresh produce to 2,000 families in Queens. Over a dozen, out of work, local restaurant employees are hired to be a part of this process.
Brighter Bites has been providing 100% of the funding but going forward they need our help. This fundraiser aims to do just that. Please help a neighbor and give what you can. A $5 donation will purchase a weekly produce box.
This Brighter Bites initiative is made possible by the partnership and hard work of volunteers, City Harvest, The Connected Chef, Silvercup Studios and 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.
