Meals for the over 150 families displaced by the Jackson Heights fire
Organized by Jonathan Forgash
Queens Together is teaming up with the 89 Street Tenants Unidos to help feed the families and those staying at area hotels till next Tuesday. Please donate today. These funds will pay local restaurants to prepare fresh made meals and deliver them to our neighbors in need. Any funds remaining after Tuesday will purchase meals for the Jackson Heights Community Fridge.
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.
