We are proud to maintain longstanding relationships with incredible communities across New York City, made up of individuals affected by homelessness, HIV/AIDS, the justice system, and immigration status, among other challenges. We have seen through our partnerships that these communities are resilient, loving, and brave. Our students and their families are facing many obstacles during this pandemic, one of which is food scarcity.
If food scarcity is affecting you, your family, or your community, these resources may be able to help.

Food for vulnerable and food-insecure New Yorkers
-The City has created the #GetFoodNYC Food Delivery Program to provide food for coronavirus-vulnerable and food-insecure New Yorkers not currently served through existing food delivery programs. This is a food delivery service for people who are unable to go outside for food. This program delivers two meals to each person in the household, every day.
