Project in progress
What is your wish for this project?
We hope to raise awareness in our school and in the larger New York City community about the often "invisible" problem of food insecurity. We wish to provide direct support, through volunteering and donating, to those who are experiencing food insecurity. Lastly, we hope to create relationships with programs that will continually work to solve this problem on a systematic level and to work towards long-term meaningful solutions.
How are you going to do it?
We would like to use the funds to support active community service trips and initiatives. We plan to use the funds to make sandwiches for a group that donates them to people who are experiencing homelessness, to buy supplies for local food banks and to support the City Meals on Wheels program. On a larger scale, we will use to funds to raise awareness within our school and larger community about this important issue.
