Corona, Queens has suffered more cases of Covid-19 and more deaths than any neighborhood in NYC. As Black, Brown, and immigrant communities have been disproportionately impacted by this health crisis across the country, the largely immigrant communities living in Corona face devastating loss and food insecurity due to unemployment and unequal access to resources.
Since June 2020, the Queens Museum has been hosting a weekly food distribution in collaboration with La Jornada and Together We Can Community Resource Center Inc., serving between 400 and 950 families every Wednesday with a week's worth of food items.
We are seeking five volunteers every Wednesday to assist with this extremely important initiative. Shifts are between 10:00am and 2:00pm or 1:00pm and 5:00pm. You may register here: https://cerv.is/m?0295x230
