Our work has always been very collaborative and community-based, but that has taken on a whole new meaning over the last 8 months. We have been in community overdrive (if there is such a thing) and it’s been humbling and beautiful to participate in.
While Omar and I and our team of volunteers and staff have been working to maintain our Lifeline Grocery program, we have also been working closely with other community groups that we are pleased to call our distribution partners.
What we all have in common is that we believe in a world that WE create together. We know that it’s up to us to make the changes we want to see in the world and we also know that we all deserve access to quality food that will help us thrive in our communities.
Please check out our distribution partners below and learn more about their work and how to support and get involved:
Astoria Food Pantry
Queens Care Collective
Sunnyside/Woodside Mutual Aid (SWMA)
Love Wins Food Pantry
Each month The Connected Chef works with our partners to get out as much quality produce and grains as possible to communities across NYC.
The work each of these groups is doing is vital to supporting our neighbors and ensuring a real impact is made in the fight against food insecurity and community building.
Please take a look at their work more closely and know that supporting any one of us means deeply supporting communities across NYC.
