QCH YouthBuild Participants Build Emergency Food Pantry for Pomonok Community

Students of QCH's YouthBuild program recently finished building a food pantry in Pomonok as a food justice initiative. Congresswoman Grace Meng, QCH Executive Director Ben Thomases, the YouthBuild program, and members of the Pomonok community were in attendance for the Grand Opening of the Pomonok Food Exchange Pantry.

"A 24/7 food pantry... Proud to have secured funding for this important @USDOL youth program in my district. Bravo! @QCHnyc", congresswoman Meng tweeted.

The pantry now serves as an emergency food service for the community!
