Food Drive for Victims of Coronavirus Fallout
Coronavirus has changed the pace of life for all of us. For some this means not going to school or work, or seeing friends less. For others this means suffering from the virus or having less access to food because school is their primary food provider.
Many disadvantaged students on Long Island have not had access to their most reliable source of food- school. To mitigate this problem, the Bipartisan Feminist Project is holding a food drive for Community Action Southold Town (CAST), an organization that is providing emergency Feed-A-Kid packages to families in need on the North Fork. Officials reported that Southold had 19 cases of Coronavirus as of Sunday, and they are in need of help.
To maintain social distancing, you can contribute by placing nonperishable goods on your porch this Friday March 20th, or next Friday March 27th. We will be picking up items at 5:00pm on these days. CAST is in need of: peanut butter, canned vegetables, granola bars, nuts, cookies, pasta, mac and cheese, and crackers.
So if you have anything in your house or are taking a trip to Costco, pick something up for those in need!
We will be driving these to CAST on Saturday, where they will go directly to families who can not afford food on their own. Want to donate? Email or direct message us through our website or Instagram (@bipartisan_feminist _project), and we will pick up your donations.
Thank you for your support!
