It's good to remember that in crises, natural crises, human beings forget for awhile their ignorances, their biases, their prejudices. For a little while, neighbors help neighbors and strangers help strangers.
Our driving principle is that we are all in this together. If someone is in need of food to help them self-quarantine, we want to be there to help. It's that simple.
Currently, from a logistics standpoint, we are only able to fulfill requests for the delivery of baskets within the United States. Depending on demand, we may expand these options soon.
How do you find people in need?
We are working with several organizations who have relationships in the most vulnerable communities particularly in New York City.
We are always open to introductions of people who can help us expand our outreach. If you want to connect us with someone to further our network, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do you deliver a Food Basket to those in need?
Depending on the geographical location of the family or individual, we will use whatever option we can to fulfill the request. That may include delivery services like Amazon Fresh, Fresh Direct and Instacart as well as hiring locale Task Rabbits and other providers.
As you may be aware, delivery options vary greatly depending on the location, so we'll currently be processing each order as best and most efficiently as we can.
What happens to my donation?
We are using 100% of the funds that we receive to send Food Baskets to those who request it. We do have fees that will be deducted from your donation including Stripe processing fees for Credit Cards and delivery fees for the Basket Distribution.
Short Answer: we are not making any money on this or taking a cut from any of it. We are sending all the money out the door.
I am allergic to using credit cards. Do you accept other forms of payment?
Of course. Send us an email and we'll figure out alternative methods. Bitcoin, Venmo, CashApp, Zelle... sure, why not :)
We're all in this together!
Let's show the world that we are always rise to the challenge and help each other when we need it most.
