COVID-19 Food Relief Project
New unemployment claims exceeded one million last week. In New York, thousands are still unemployed along with the thousands of seniors and disabled who are at high risk of contracting COVID-19 and are experiencing rent burden and food insecurity.
The pandemic continues to magnify the many inequalities facing our black, brown, and latinx families across NYC. P.A.’L.A.N.T.E. is taking proactive steps to safely provide food, PPE, and other resources for our community residents. Last week, we provided culturally competent bagged groceries to 130 families to help them meet their basic needs.
To date, we have assisted 354 families and with your help, we can do more. You can make a donation by visiting our website at Remember that access to healthy, nutritious food is among the most fundamental of human needs. Food insecurity doesn't discriminate, especially during a pandemic.
Every dollar counts and will support our COVID-19 Food Relief Project. You can choose to make a one-time donation (no matter how small) or become a monthly financial supporter.
