Uptown Go Green

Healthy Food Transforms Lives


THANKSGIVING 2019: NOT BY BREAD ALONE

THE PROBLEM

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.


“‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
— Matthew 4:4

OUR RESPONSE

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 a healthy communities initiative called “Uptown Go Green”. 


This Thanksgiving, NYGO and Eradicate Bible Poverty are teaming up to feed 3,000 needy families both physically and spiritually.

 

YOUR PARTICIPATION

We are looking for donors to sponsor this initiative. Help us provide these families with the word of God and healthy provisions; AND help a people group experience the joy of the Bible in their own language for the very first time.


Your gift will:

-provide a tote bag full of fresh food for NYC families

-provide a copy of the Word of God to those families

-provide for one verse of Scripture to be translated into another language for the first time!
