Greater Riverdale Cares & Route 1 Communities Care

Your donation of $40 will provide a delicious and healthy meal for a family of four from a local restaurant. Together we can keep our Greater Riverdale  and Route One kitchens open, workers employed and provide healthy, nutritious food to neighbors in need.

These are uniquely very difficult times. The COVID-19 virus strains small businesses to make payroll, maintain inventory, and keep their doors open. Many restaurants and social gathering places have closed. Families struggle to pay for basic needs – food and shelter. Present statistics say that 30% of restaurants may not re-open after this crisis is over. 

Join Councilmember Dannielle Glaros, CKAR CDC, Kaiser Permanente and community partners to support restaurants in the Greater Riverdale and Route One communities during this COVID-19 crisis to provide healthy warm meals to those in need.

Your donation will directly support the purchase of meals from our partner restaurants: Banana Blossom Bistro,  Denizens Brewing Co,  Dumms 2Fifty Texas BBQ,  Riviera Tapas, Food Factory, Emerita's, Krazi Kebob, Shortcake Bakery, and Marathon Deli to help keep their kitchens open and their staff on payroll. The meals will be distributed – free of charge -- to neighbors in need in the Greater Riverdale communities (zip code 20737),  College Park, Hyattsville and University Park. 

Together, we can support our local businesses, feed our neighbors, and demonstrate that Greater Riverdale Cares and Route One Communities Care.

Your gift of $10 will feed one person; $40 will feed one family; $120 will feed three families. No gift is too small – or too large! How many will you feed today?

Our restaurants have prepared, and we have distributed over 4,500 meals as of August 1st.  You can keep this going by your continued support.

Thank you for your support!
