Local Queens community organizations team-up for food boxes and “family-meals”

March 16, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Corona NY pop-up food event


One of the New York City’s largest pandemic response groups Queens Together (QT) is teaming with The Dominico-American Society of Queens (DASQ) to bring meals from local restaurants, and USDA food boxes to families in the heart of Corona, Queens.

DASQ Executive Director, Jose Tejada, teams up with QT founder and Executive Director, Jonathan Forgash to build a bridge that connects local restaurants with food relief efforts in their communities. Local Queens resident and Wine & Liquor distributor Ralph Trionfo has been an active volunteer with both organizations. Trionfo selected the restaurant’s and brands Jack Daniels and Turquoise Life to sponsor the restaurant meals.

Local Restaurants El Gauchito Established in 1979 & La Pequena Colombia Established in 1984 are preparing meals for 100 families in the neighborhood. DASQ volunteers will deliver to the eldery and infirm neighbors unable to leave home. QT is donating 375 USDA food boxes that will be distributed in front of the Dominico-American Society of Queens offices.
