What is Potluck Carry-In?
Hi! We’re a group dedicated to raising money to feed underserved communities in NYC and to shedding light on issues within our food systems. By partnering with other non-profits, we’re devoted to using every single dollar donated to make as many meals as possible for people in need.
On March 20th, Governor Cuomo issued an executive order for New Yorkers to stay at home in an effort to slow the spreading of COVID 19. Daily life has transformed since then, and for many marginalized people, basic needs such as food security became a massive risk. Not only were marginalized communities already underserved, but the unprecedented conditions of COVID pushed them even further with many more unsure of where their next meal would come from. By raising money to feed food insecure communities, we are addressing an immediate need and providing a direct service.
Where does my money go?
We’ve partnered with Green Top Farms and Lucha Vida a US 501(c)3 non-profit based in NY, to take your donation. They work with local partners to get highly nutritious meals to children and families in need. It takes about $4.00 to produce a meal, so your $20 can make 5 meals!
