SIFIF Featured NYS Coronavirus Update

Staten Island Feeds It Forward was the “Deep Breath Moment” in the NYS Update of February 9, 2021.

Tonight’s “Deep Breath Moment”: A group of Staten Island residents have come together to form “Staten Island Feeds It Forward,” an initiative that helps food-insecure Staten Islanders while supporting local restaurants. Founded by Mariana Ortega, the organization connects nonprofits with restaurants. Patrons of participating restaurants can “pay forward” meals or other bites using receipt vouchers—which are then given out by nonprofits to those in need. Learn more about the organization and how to get involved.

GIVE BACK, FEED IT FORWARD

How it Works

  1. At check-out, tell the cashier you want to Feed It Forward.
  2. The price of one item will be added to your purchase.
  3. The restaurant prints and keeps a copy of your receipt, which
    buys food for a Staten Islander in need.
  4. The receipts are collected for distribution to the community.
