Feed hungry, at-risk New Yorkers during COVID-19!

I run a company called FoodtoEat. At FoodtoEat, we partner with immigrant, women, and minority-owned restaurants in New York City and assist in book catering jobs for them at corporate offices throughout the city. We have partnered with companies 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 or revenue for our restaurant partners.


We are asking for individuals to place catering orders through us  or to donate directly to us through this campaign. With the donations that come in, we will place orders with our restaurant partners and donate all the orders to shelters and food banks in New York City. We will be partnering with the institutions serving the most vulnerable folks during this unprecedented time.


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

With folks (rightly) working from home, restaurants across the U.S. are seeing 50-90% declines in business, forcing many to already shut 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.

Is my donation tax-deductible?

Yes. Our campaign is a fiscally-sponsored project at THE GIVING BACK FUND, INC., a nonprofit corporation with tax exemption status from the IRS under code 501c3. The Giving Back Fund is a reputable fiscal sponsor for philanthropic projects. Our team of volunteers is partnering directly with them to handle fundraising for this initiative.
