Celebrating Four Months
1:1 Foods has evolved so much since the initial idea for the project sparked early spring. We’re fired up, deeply determined and driven by our mission to support Brooklyn’s food-insecure families and small food businesses. To celebrate our first few months, we’re revisiting our major achievements.

donated over 900 meals
Working alongside our community partners, the CFL Pantry in Sunset Park and FIG, we've been able to produce and deliver over 900 nutrient-dense meals and bountiful grocery kits to families in need. While we began serving the food-insecure in Brooklyn, we have since expanded to help all New York City residents. In our partnership with FIG, we have chosen to prioritize those most directly impacted by the pandemic including immigrant food workers, domestic workers, LGBTQ+ youth and folx facing housing insecurity.
