*PLEASE NOTE UPDATE
To our community,
We are grateful for your support under our initial HG Meals campaign.
Because of YOU we have reached our $24,000 goal here which has enabled us to deliver almost 2,000 meals to shelters across Harlem thrugh the end of April.
Due to the overwhelming need for and response to this critical work, we have expanded this campaign into HG Meals: Harlem Helping Harlem to include more restaurants and more shelters across Harlem so we can provide more meals through the end of May as COVID-19 continues to impact the Harlem Community.
With our expanded HG Meals Harlem Helping Harlem we will be partnering with Teranga, Babbaluci and Chef JJ of FIELDTRIP, and delivering to more shelters and serving more community members 5 days a week.
Please share/donate using this NEW CAMPAIGN LINK: https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/hg-meals-harlem-helping-harlem
Any additional funds beyond the $24,000 here will be applied to our expanded campaign.
From all of us a Harlem Grown, and the community we serve, thank you.
Initial HG Meals with Chef JJ
The world has changed drastically in just a short few weeks, and it is our hope that you - our community and extended family - are safe and healthy among this ever-changing landscape. Please know we are thinking of you and are here for you during this time.
Against this backdrop our food-focused work continues, as we address the critical needs of our youth, families, and community during this time of crisis, with a high-need program called HG Meals.
In partnership with local community restaurants, our HG Meals program will enable us to provide hot, nutritious meals to youth, families, and community members living in shelters throughout Harlem who are in economic distress.
For the month of April, we are partnering with Chef JJ of FIELDTRIP.
But we can't do it alone.
With a donation to HG Meals, you will be making an impact in three ways by:
1. Providing hot, nutritious meals to homeless children, families, and individuals
2. Supporting a local business, and their staff
3. Supporting Harlem Grown to do this critical work
At $12 per meal:
$500 will feed 42 people, support a local restaurant, and enable Harlem Grown to provide this critical service
$250 will feed 21 people, support a local restaurant, and enable Harlem Grown to provide this critical service
$50 will feed 4 people, support a local restaurant, and enable Harlem Grown to provide this critical service
This is one of the most challenging moments in human history, and we continue to witness the best of humanity shine through. We ask that you partner with us so that together we. are there for our youth, families, and the community that we have cultivated over the years and that depend on us today more than ever.
From our Farmily to yours, and on behalf of Cheff JJ and his staff, thank you!
