Oyate Group’s Rising Initiatives were launched to alleviate food insecurity across New York City 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.


Bronx Rising Initiative has partnered with multiple 501(c)(3)s and Bronx-based businesses to end hunger in The Bronx.

We work with these partners to to distribute and deliver food across the Bronx and Upper Manhattan to local supermarkets through Bronx Rising Initiative and Uptown Rising Initiative.

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 New Yorker that is in need through the most efficient and effective means possible.

Supporting our community
organizations 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. Oyate Group was founded to help uplift and support the community, and that means supporting the organizations that help and uplift us every day.”
