Starting, November 19th and going on through November 28th, Community Solidarity, Inc. will be organizing its largest endeavor to date; it will include parties, Food Shares, copious amounts of decadent meals, the sharing of clothing, books and the organized efforts of hundreds of community members.
This is our tenth annual Thanksgiving Bonanza! Our goal is to share a smorgasbord of vegan hot meals, groceries, winter clothing and Thanksgiving supplies with over 10,000 people in the week before, and the week after Thanksgiving, but we need your help to make this happen.
The Wyandanch Food Share, which occurs every Saturday at noon, is our newest distribution location. Wyandanch is an area that can be called a "food desert" meaning that it's an area that lacks access to healthier nutritious foods. It's an area where fast foods, or processed foods, are much easier to attain than their healthier alternatives. This lack of nutrition increases a plethora of health problems from heart disease, to diabetes, to ADHD, and even cancer. This is why sharing free nutritious foods is sharing health, and that's paramount to our mission in Wyandanch.
