We’re elated to announce our first community based organization (CBO) partnership with the CFL food pantry in Sunset Park! With this partnership in place, we’ll be able to reach hundreds of families local to Sunset Park and the surrounding neighborhoods.
For every kit you purchase, we donate a ready-to-heat meal package that serves four to the CFL.
The CFL is a wraparound social service organization that has worked to support families in Sunset Park for over 40 years. It provides a broad range of services to empower the community including:
-After school programs
-Worker Coop Program educating individuals on tax preparation and finances,
-Community Services Program, connecting people to an array of government benefits in times of need
The pantry has served the neighborhood for over three decades and is an entry point into the CFL’s support network for many.
Since NYC’s shutdown, the CFL has provided over 25,000 meals to residents in the neighborhood, but their ability to support the community in the long term is at stake. The dramatic increase in need has put a strain on the CFL’s resources and they need our help. In the spirit of mutual aid, consider donating to them here and support Sunset Park.
