the project

During the upcoming holidays, we look to create food relief in the underserved East Harlem NYCHA community of Wagner Houses. The food disparities prior to and during this global pandemic continue to impact the overall wellness in areas that have been the hardest hit by COVID-19. We are hoping to ease the hardship residents may be experiencing during the upcoming holiday season.
