The Bronx Rising Initiative was launched to alleviate food insecurity within the Bronx for senior citizens and families who are struggling, either due to COVID-19 or other circumstances. Access to quality meals is a form of racial justice.
The initiative has already secured over $100,000 for efforts that have included partnering with multiple 501(c)(3)s and Bronx-based businesses that are working on the front lines to end hunger in The Bronx. We work with these partners to secure funding to distribute and deliver food or provide gift cards to local supermarkets.
Our work is ongoing, and we are interested in working with nonprofits that will be able to increase capacity with the received financial contributions and expand food relief services for every Bronxite that is in need through the most efficient and effective means possible.
on the frontlines!
“Our team has worked with various nonprofits in different capacities over the years; we know the hardships they deal with each day, and we know they are undoubtedly going through the most trying of times during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their funding continues to be cut, and now more than ever, they need our help to stay operational. The Bronx Rising Initiative was founded to help uplift and support the community, and that means supporting the organizations that help and uplift us every day.”
