September 2020-Chinese American Parent-Student Council (CAPSC) has been a committed and staunch advocate in addressing food insecurity in our communities. The issue of food insecurity has nevertheless been exacerbated and has been more widespread during this pandemic due to the increasing number of people who have lost their jobs.

 

To address this crisis in our community during the pandemic, CAPSC took decisive action and mobilized its efforts, working alongside businesses and  nonprofit organizations, in organizing a food drive in September 2020. The food donation was then donated to the Food Bank of New York to assist food banks and pantries across our neighborhoods that don’t have the resources they need to continue serving the community.

CAPSC  works with stakeholders to stamp out hunger and malnutrition

 For the past decade, CAPSC has been working towards hunger relief efforts within our local communities. We have organized food drives and donated  non-perishable items to local seniors, who are the most vulnerable of them all, and local non-profit social services organizations, such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and the Food Bank for New York City. Throughout the Summer and Fall of 2017, we have been in conversations with Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs on working towards addressing the root causes of hunger as well as working together to decide long-term and pragmatic solutions, citing the old adage of "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." We also implored SMEs and entrepreneurs to support the United Nations' Zero Hunger Challenge, which was launched by Former United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in 2012 to end malnutrition and hunger. We encourage businesses to demonstrate leadership and coordinate efforts with their employees to stamping out hunger within their communities.
