The BlaQue Resource Network
Organized by BlaQue Resource Network
It is impossible to ignore the relationship between diet and immunity. Because our neighborhood in Queens is one of the hardest hit by the pandemic, we are starting this fundraiser to help our community through COVID with providing them with basic resources such as healthy food, while supporting our local restaurant industry.

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.
