Building owners provide rent-free space for pantry

In an expanded effort by CHIP’s members to help build stronger communities throughout New York City, CHIP announced a partnership with MMM Food Pantry in the Manhattan neighborhood of Inwood.
Fifteen CHIP members will provide funding for the food pantry’s full rent so that the organization can allocate additional resources for its main objective — supporting the area’s most vulnerable residents.
The members contributing to the effort are all property owners in Upper Manhattan.
The pantry is operated by the Inwood church Centro Evangelistico Pentecostes del Movimiento Misionero Mundial and provides food to about 500 people every Saturday. Typically, the pantry is busiest at the end of the month when SNAP resources run out for families and individuals.
“This partnership with MMM Food Pantry advances CHIP’s mission to help all New Yorkers thrive,” said Jeff Farkas, Board Member of CHIP.
“Our collective efforts to bolster MMM’s essential work is a natural extension of how CHIP members operate. Often away from the public eye, our members – many of whom are small business owners – have invested significant resources across all five boroughs to provide safe and well-maintained housing for New Yorkers. Likewise, the MMM Food Pantry team is comprised of a small group of individuals who work non-stop to uplift New Yorkers that need it most.
“This partnership is a natural fit and we are beyond excited to assist MMM Food Pantry in providing such a vital service.”
