The Food Education Fund (FEF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that works hand-in-hand with Food & Finance High School (FFHS). As NYC’s only culinary high school, Food and Finance High School provides a unique educational opportunity to students and families in the community.
Like all schools closed recently in the New York City region due to the coronavirus pandemic, The Food Education Fund has taken steps to address their FFHS students and alumni groups with valuable information and next steps.
Below is the letter from Eliza Loehr, Executive Director, Food Education Fund:
Hi Community!!! We miss seeing you IRL! AND we’ve been so inspired by the thoughtful and quick work you’ve all been doing over the past week to support your communities!! We hope you’re all staying safe, feeling well, and taking some time to breath and pause as we start to take stock of what this all means for us, for our families, for our communities, and for the world. We wanted to fill you in on our response and our next steps:
WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO
1. Direct Support to Alumni
2. Food Distribution
Check out the links above if you haven’t already for more info on how toget help and resources as well as how to give help and resources. We’re excited that both of these have been a helpful resource to the 15,000+ folks who have viewed them over the past week!
4. Transitioning Programs Online
OUR NEXT STEPS
1. Continuing to Support our Students and Alumni
While we were glad to be able to be a resource as the uncertainty unfolded early last week, we know that in the long term our organization is not the most equipped to lead the relief efforts. We are working closely with many larger organizations who are creating longer term relief plans, and our aim is to use our resource hub to direct people to the great resources they are creating.
