West Side Campaign Against Hunger (WSCAH) is a nonprofit organization on a mission to alleviate hunger by ensuring that all New Yorkers have access with dignity to a choice of healthy food and supportive services. WSCAH will be rocking the block once again this Spring on Sunday, May 21st from 12 – 4pm at their annual block party! ROCKS THE BLOCK allows participants to engage in a meaningful day where you can make an impact and gather with the WSCAH community.
There will be activities for the entire family including packing meals for neighbors in need, writing cards to customers and elected officials, life-sized games, live music, and refreshments provided by local Upper West Side partners.
The event also features WSCAH’s first Student Writing Competition which invites young writers (ages 10 to 18) to share submissions on how food can strengthen ourselves and our communities. Winners will be invited to perform their work at the block party and will receive a gift card to a local business.

Come out and join the fun on May 21st!
