Matching fundraiser for the First Baptist Church food pantry in Corona Queens

Organized by Jonathan Forgash

Last month Queens Together worked with local resident Manuel Vargas to bring meals and dry goods to Reverend Patrick at the First Baptist Church food pantry in Corona. The Reverend spoke about the dramatic increase in recipients and how there is never enough food to share. They help 500+ neighborhood families who are living at the epicenter of this pandemic and face severe food and economic insecurity. Saturday, January 9 is the first food pantry of the new year. We want to be there and support our Corona community.

Queens Together will match every donation to this fundraiser, up to the total fundraising goal of $5,000. The funds will purchase meals and dry goods for the food pantry. Please make a donation today. - Jonathan Forgash

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.
