Uptown Go Green

Healthy Food Transforms Lives


Currently there is great need for emergency food in the Washington Heights/Inwood community with 27% living below the poverty line. Sixty percent suffer from being overweight or obese and 10% from diabetes.  Good nutritional food is needed and often not affordable.


In response to this need, Pastor Walter Sotelo organizes and mobilizes various community partners and local churches in partnership with residents, businesses, schools, and other community organizations through healthy communities initiative called “Uptown Go Green”. 



We are looking for donors to sponsor tote bags of fresh produce at $30 each. Our desire is to provide a fresh produce for 3,000 needy families with this collaborative effort. Your gift will help us mobilizing our community to help and empower neighbors in need.
