Our Covid Response
With the most vulnerable people urged not to go out, even for groceries, many of our neighbors do not have a safe way to get food. In response, One Community organized a coalition of 32 partner organizations to distribute groceries. Each week over 60 volunteers bring food to seniors and other vulnerable people who live in public housing and other low-income housing.
The 209 households served on March 27 has grown to 1,600.
Major funding provided by New York City Council Majority Leader Laurie A. Cumbo, Robin Hood, Brooklyn for Life!, Curtis Cravens, MADDD Equities, the Society for Clinton Hill, Peter Grossman and Sarah Weir and James Cohan.
