I was devastated to learn about the senseless death of young Justin Wallace this past weekend. Rather than the family celebrating his 11th birthday this week, they are dealing with the worst trauma a family could face, the loss of a child. Our hearts go out to them. A family friend tells me some heartwarming food would be appreciated.
Please donate today. We will use the money to fund local restaurants and take care of this family. We expect to feed 20 people per day. Any additional funds will be sent to the family. I'll start with a $100 donation.
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.
