The Henrik Lundqvist Foundation has decided to support the Food Bank for New York City in the ongoing Covid-19 crisis with a $100,000 grant. This donation will serve approximately 68,000 meals to 8,000 children and their families in NYC.
The Food Bank has identified that the grant will have the best reach if it supports both the Campus Pantries as well as the community-based pop-up mobile markets.
To help children maintain access to healthy nutrition, Food Bank will: 1) maintain an operational presence in public schools via Campus Pantries and 2) deploy at minimum, 27 mobile markets through June (at minimum 3 per week) with an emphasis on outreach to families with children whose childcare or in-class learning has been interrupted.
