Country: USA

Location: Staten Island, NY

Total Budget: $5,000

Area of Focus: Community economic development

Activity Type: Community Development: General

Summary: Purchase & Deliver food to Staten Island, NY food pantries to give help and hope to struggling families


Hunger touches every community. It is hard to believe that over 1000 Staten Islanders need help daily. Our "Hunger Hurts" initiative is aimed to address this need. The Club members assist in keeping food pantries stocked at various times of the year. Using grants, donations and the generosity of our members, we are able to help at times of the year when, perhaps, people aren't thinking of giving as much. The Club members purchase food in the local market and deliver it to a food pantry/closet that not only feeds people in its immediate area but also supplies other food pantries in need. Our Foundation Chairman stresses that "usually people are generous to donate food for the holiday season but the 'Hunger Hurts' initiative helps fight hunger all year long."

In addition our club would like to expand our project this year to support the senior community during the Covid -19 pandemic. As a result of Covid -19 many of the Senior Centers in the Staten Island Community are not able to service their customers through traditional methods. One of the main challenges is that the seniors can't be picked up to congregate at the local centers where they receive many of their basic needs including food, toiletries, and social activities that keep their minds active. The Rotary Club of Staten Island will be partnering with Arch Care to deliver basic toiletries and adult puzzle books to help fill this need. The books will be branded with our club information and will provide Seniors with an activity to keep their minds active.

The funds raised through this grant will be matched by our Club and used by April 30, 2020.
