This is why I was so excited when I came across the Bed Stuy Campaign Against Hunger (BSCAH). "In 2011 [the] SuperPantry served over 1.2 million meals to the hungry families of New York City. [They] serviced all Boroughs and neighborhoods, and currently over 11,000 unduplicated clients shop at [their] pantry each month, with more people joining [the] pantry every day."
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
BSCAH performs health screenings for high blood pressure, blood sugar, and HIV as those with poor diets who cannot afford to see a doctor are at the highest risk for unchecked obesity, diabetes, and other associated complications.
On top of all this, they have a farm where they produce 2500 lbs.of fresh produce. They really do it all.
They have entered "Twive and Receive" a fundraising fundraiser! The top 3 fundraisers get a bonus share of $30,000 on top of the money they raised. You might have noticed a new button on my sidebar.
