The AAPI community encompasses so many different cultures, languages, and origins, so language can be a major roadblock for people. Though the city provides some translations for languages spoken by AAPI people [currently Chinese, Korean, and Bengali], there are still so many languages and dialects that are left out. That’s where we come in.”
To serve these New Yorkers, we make it a priority to partner with community-based organizations that are able to identify and meet the unique needs of their neighbors. Learn more about our approach below!
FOOD INSECURITY IN THE AAPI COMMUNITY
People who identify as either “Asian” or “Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander” live in NYC.
Asian American and Pacific Islander New Yorkers are living below the federal poverty level.
According to the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC), the AAPI community is both the fastest growing racial group in the United States and the one with the fastest growing (and widest) wealth gap.
