Tacombi Community Kitchen
WE HAVE NOW DONATED OVER 180,000 MEALS!
The Tacombi Community Kitchen prepares & distributes wholesome Mexican meals to people who need them. Initiated as a food relief program during the COVID-19 outbreak in NYC, the TCK has committed to grow this non-profit initiative and fight food insecurity for the long term.
14% of people in New York City don’t know where their next meal is going to come from. They are food insecure and the trend is getting worse. As of June 2020 New York City has experienced a 30% average increase in soup kitchen and food pantry demand due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
With over 3,500 meals being distributed every week, our beneficiaries include Hispanic community and immigrants who represent large percentage of the hospitality labor force. About 75% of TCK families we serve live on annual household income of less than $23,000 with an average of 5 family members.
