American Chai Foundation Generous Donation to the Riverside Food Pantry

The Riverside Church is grateful for a generous grant from the American Chai Foundation for $5,000 towards the food pantry. Riverside’s Director of Stewardship & Development, Meighan Corbett has organized for us to receive the maximum amount offered for a grant for the last three years. The Riverside Food Pantry has been providing meals and groceries for almost 60 years to members of the West Harlem and Morningside Heights communities. The last several years, with the pandemic and inflation, have been particularly challenging, with the pantry experiencing a four-fold increase in the number of clients seeking food supplies for their households. We appreciate the American Chai Foundation for its commitment to supporting our food pantry.
