Charity Partner

As is our Thanksgiving tradition, we are partnering with a local organization that provides social services and community support. The Campaign Against Hunger (TCAH) is one of the largest anti-hunger nonprofits working to tackle hunger and poverty in underserved and marginalized communities across NYC. TCAH's mission is to empower our neighbors to live healthier, more productive, and self-sufficient lives by increasing their access to safe, nutritious food and other related resources. Before the COVID19 pandemic, TCAH served 300,000 food-insecure New Yorkers through expanding healthy food access, workforce programs and training, benefits access services, urban farming, and community nutrition education. Since the pandemic, TCAH has served over 2 million individuals, providing enough food for over 25 million nutritious meals. TCAH has also established 250 new community partnerships, two temporary community food distribution centers of approximately 30,000 sq. ft. in Brooklyn and Far Rockaway, and infused 20,000 pounds of nutrient-rich foods into our communities.
