Describe a recent change in your organization that resulted from feedback.
During our most recent strategic planning process, we heard feedback from our participants on the Lower East Side that they were challenged by food security and affordability As a direct result, our Director of Senior Services undertook a project to partner with City Harvest to provide a monthly food pantry, where at least 10,000 lbs of free fresh food is distributed to the community every month The food pantry has been very successful and impactful
