We are pleased to introduce you to our March Charity of the Month:
Community Solidarity is America’s largest all-vegetarian hunger relief food program. Each week, Community Solidarity assists thousands of families by sharing free nutritious vegetarian groceries and hot gourmet vegan meals at food shares in four locations: Hempstead, Farmingville, Huntington, Wyandanch and Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The plant-based foods they offer these families are not only healthier than most foods offered by mainstream food banks; they’re also compassionate and sustainable.
Community Solidarity’s mission is simple: By promoting a vegan diet, and sharing vegetarian groceries, they save animals. By empowering communities, and ending hunger, they help people. In 2017 Community Solidarity provided over $13,155,297.38 of assistance including over 5,257,857 pounds of vegetarian groceries! Every $1 donated to Community Solidarity allows them to rescue 328 pounds of vegetarian groceries—that’s a week’s worth of groceries for 11 people. We’re thrilled to be able to contribute to their efforts through Rising Tide’s BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag)/Charity of the Month program.
Community Solidarity is always looking for volunteers to distribute groceries at their food shares, to organize clothing drives, or to offer talents in other areas. Get in touch with them and see how you can make a difference.
