With financial help from its many loyal, local supporters, the West Side Campaign Against Hunger (WSCAH) has accomplished a lot this year.
- Serving over 77,000 customers from all 5 boroughs of the city.
- Distributing over 4.3 million pounds of food, 2.2 million being fresh produce.
- Connecting over 4,600 families to vital benefits.
- Collaborating with over 65 partnering organizations across all 5 boroughs of NYC.
Based on the Upper West Side at 263 West 86th Street, WSCAH is one of the largest food pantries and emergency food providers in NYC – but they need your support to continue this critical work in the year ahead:
More than 1.5 million New Yorkers (including 1 in 3 children) are currently experiencing food insecurity – a 38% increase since the beginning of COVID-19.
“As the WSCAH team propels itself into the future, I am inspired by what we’ve accomplished and recognize that there is much more work to be done to ensure that all New Yorkers have access with dignity to healthy food and supportive services,” wrote Gregory Silverman, WSCAH’s Chief Executive Officer.
Those who support WSCAH create access to healthy food for hungry New Yorkers – including children, single mothers and the elderly.
And WSCAH’s support comes in all sizes – just $25 will buy a case of oranges, while $100 will buy 300 pounds of fresh potatoes. You can also choose any amount you’re comfortable with.
“If there is anything the past year has shown us, it is that together we can accomplish anything we set out to,” Silverman wrote to his loyal donors.
