UPDATE: We launched a Community Fridge & We are re-launching fundraising w/ Deirdre!
While the running challenge may be over, the food crisis in the Bronx and many other parts of the city continues. This holiday season, ~2 million New Yorkers will face food insecurity (NY FOOD 20/20, Hunter College, Sept 2020). A frightening number that is up from 1.2 million this time last year.
I’ve partnered with East Bronx Dems, a mutual aid organization, to raise money for community fridges in the Bronx and to keep them stocked this winter and until the pandemic is over. The group is doing this in addition to grocery store gift cards and deliveries for those who cannot leave their homes.
If you can afford to, please consider donating. No one should have to wonder where their next meal is coming from, especially not in our own backyard.
