On Thursday, 10/5, our New York based employees spent the morning at the New York Common Pantry assisting staff with sorting and packaging donated food, taking food orders from donation recipients and distributing food to recipients at their location on 109th street. The NY Common Pantry is dedicated to reducing hunger and food insecurity in the New York area, serving their clients with dignity and respect. A large portion of each food package that goes to a recipient includes fresh fruit and vegetables. This is a busy location serving over 6,000 000 meals last year! We were all impressed with how well run the organization is and how accessible their services are to local residents.
