We are excited to announce that as of October 1, 2018, our organization’s official name of business will be The Campaign Against Hunger, or TCAH (pronounced, Tee-Cuh) for short.
Bedford-Stuyvesant holds a special place in our hearts and will always be our home. When we were founded in 1998 as a small pantry operating out of a church basement, our clients were primarily located in Bed-Stuy. Over the past twenty years, however, our organization has expanded in many ways. The once small basement pantry has become the SuperPantry emporium is it today. We now offer hundreds of nutrition education classes, workshops, and cooking demonstrations each year for our clients. The Green Teens internship program has played an integral role in the lives of young adults in Brooklyn and Far Rockaway. And lastly, we now offer a suite of social services, including SNAP registration, health insurance enrollment, tax filing preparation, and much more.
What we’re trying to say, is that we’ve grown so much and will only continue to grow! We hope to see you grow along with us.
Thanks to our Far Rock Urban Agro-Ecological Center and our Mobile Pantry, we now impact the lives of thousands in Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx each month. Our influence reaches far beyond Bedford-Stuyvesant and Brooklyn, and we want our name to reflect just that. For this reason, we have decided to change our name to The Campaign Against Hunger.
