We begin now by providing daily food feeds to hundreds of needy families and homeless from Tuesdays through Saturdays. We very much need your help now to continue to do so and to allow for us to increase the number of meals that we can provide.
· To support needy families and the homeless, The Chamber in concert with ReThink Food NYC, Salem United Methodist Church (SUMC), and NYS Assembly Member Inez Dickens have launched a weekly meal service program commencing Tuesday, April 7th. The free food service will take place each week from Tuesday through Saturday from 11AM to 3PM at SUMC on West 129th St. & Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard. This program will continue for a two-month period through June 7th and longer if needed.
· We have hired unemployed food service personnel from closed Harlem restaurants to manage this food program.
Since 1896, The Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce has served Harlem and Upper Manhattan. Harlem is the best known internationally diverse community in America. Our Chamber is working tirelessly through the Covid-19 Pandemic in concert with The City College of New York, Columbia University, the NAACP, and other renowned organizations, institutions, and individuals to provide much needed support and services.
The mission of our Community Fund is to support the Greater Harlem community by providing services for our senior citizens, local small businesses, food banks, the homeless, arts & cultural not-for-profits, and families in need.
