the project

Our pantry is located in the heart of the South Bronx and feeds 300 plus on a weekly basis. Due to a lack of money, our supplier can no longer support our pantry. This has made our pantry dry, with only enough donations to feed 25 people every two weeks.

We are forced to make decisions on an as-needed basis. The community still looks to us for support and we are crowdfunding to help keep the pantry open and providing essential nutrition to those who need it. We are working toward independence to feed a multitude of people in our community.

the steps

We will have weekly meetings. We will post our accomplishments on our Facebook page Webster Morrisania Resident Association and Gwendolyn Primus For Community Progress. In addition, we will have a celebration upon reaching our goal.

why we're doing it

We want to enhance the quantity and quality of food for our residents and community. We have access to fresh farm fruits and vegetables. The community is poor and that creates a challenge. But your donation today will help us overcome this challenge and provide this critical service to our community.
