One of my favorite singers (@cynthiaerivo ) singing one of my favorite songs.... my #mood throughout this #Monday ! I wish the same for you!!
Thrilled to celebrate how we serve in OUR COMMUNITY of #Harlem . Staff, family, volunteers and clients decided to #GoOrange for Hunger Awareness at todays African American Day Parade.
Swipe for a peek at the days highlights: spent time with the 4 women leading the way at our #Harlem kitchen/pantry. Heard their beautiful perspectives and amazing WINS before begging a trucker to let me out so i could meet with my board's chair. Got mocked by him for being in my sidewalk office but then received an incredibly sweet text from him. These are THANKFULLY my people. Im blessed to be on this team. I know it and am incredibly grateful. #happyFriday
Food Bankers from all 4 @foodbank4nyc sites wished each other a happy #GoOrange with delicious southern sweet potatoe pies!!! Thanks @mrtodspies !! Yummm
Happy, joyful Thursday!!!
17 years ago. 2 months into my 1st time working @foodbank4nyc. Attending a @feedingamerica conference...watching the screen in utter shock. We raced back to the city and threw ourselves into the work, exhausted, scared and overwhelmed. What was overwhelming? The love and support we received from all over the country. Food Banks from the Midwest, south, surrounding metro area showed up for us. They acted when we could hardly think, were worried about our families, our clients, our infrastructure. I became a Food Banker by watching food bankers respond to NYCs pain from all over the country. I will never forget. I will ALWAYS APPRECIATE. I will ALWAYS be PROUD TO SERVE as a FOOD Banker.
Miss America is a beautiful New Yorker!!! Congratulations Nia Franklin.
I LOVE when Food Bankers are excited about their projects. This is Elizabeth who dragged me over to see our new Healthy Choices vending machine. Their goal is ensure @foodbank4nyc internal offerings match and support external stance. #meetAFoodBanker #beApartofSomething #supplyJoy
A beautiful, LOVELY day to you and you and you and YOU.
In a world of petty ridiculousness...a man standing FOR REAL for SOMETHING REAL IS BEAUTIFUL OXYGEN. I cant stop staring and grinning.

Tailgating with friends at my godsons 1st college game reminded me of my college gift from my #prettyGranny . It was a #crockpot . She showed me how to make her #potroast and said "even when y'all are broke you can eat like a king for a week." Tips and steps in my stories. Thanks @foodbank4nyc partner, @shoprite for putting these on sale. $2.40/lb!!!
