This community initiative provides delivered groceries boxes to families in Western Queens, NYC who are currently affected by the economic impacts of COVID-19.
The coronavirus pandemic has brought NYC to a grinding halt. Restaurants and other businesses are closed which has resulted in thousands of workers being left jobless.
A large majority of workers in these circumstances live paycheck to paycheck and for a number of reasons, do not qualify for unemployment benefits or government aid. They are currently left stranded.
These families are in need of help now.
Donations of all sizes, big and small, are helpful.
The cost of 1 grocery box is $30. This will ensure a family of 4 is food secure for a week.
Each grocery box delivered will include staple items that will help sustain a family for the week. These items will also be sourced from local farms to help maintain our local food economy.
Items in each bag will include the following:
2-3 pounds of grains
Milk (nut or cow)
Toiletries (feminine hygiene products, diapers, toilet paper)
