Food & Care Package Drives

In 2017, we were lucky that so many NYC community members -- including Fort Greene Peace, the Intercept, the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care, Lynn Hodenfield, and many others -- organized a food drive for RIF asylum seekers  If you're interested in organizing a food drive, please contact us!

Please refer to the calendar or RSVP form below for upcoming dates. Unfortunately, we can only accept packages the day of the event (12-2pm). The distribution takes place at our asylum meetings – feel free to stick around and meet the people who are taking home your bounty!

Drop off location

Fordham University
155 W 60th Street         Room 109

Donations must be dropped off on the day of the event.

Please contact if you can bring donations. Thank you!
