Project Description

I run a company called FoodtoEat - we partner with immigrant, women, and minority-owned restaurants in NYC, and book catering jobs for them at corporate offices like Warby Parker, The Skimm, and Microsoft.

With everyone working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, our business - and by extension our restaurant partners - are taking a huge hit. No one in the office means no orders and no revenue.

OUR ASK

We are asking for individuals to either place large orders through us or for people to donate directly to us via iFundWomen. In return, we'll place orders with our restaurant partners and donate ALL FOOD to shelters and food banks in NYC - the institutions serving the most vulnerable folks during this unprecedented time.

YOUR IMPACT

Every donation / order directly impacts three separate constituencies: 1) underserved, vulnerable individuals; 2) our restaurant partners; and 3) my business, FoodToEat.

With folks (rightly) working from home, restaurants across the U.S. are seeing 50-90% declines in business, forcing many to already shutter their doors for good. We're trying to help the food community - which touches every corner of our lives - survive these trying times.

Your contribution will directly help them offset the declines they're seeing in their core business, while also nourishing the life of someone else in need.

As a for-profit business these donations are not tax deductible

Thank you!
