The Kingston Food
Emergency food Collective

The Kingston Emergency Food Collective (KEFC), is run entirely by volunteers and provides fresh food and household essentials to individuals and families who may be experiencing hardship in the Kingston New York community. Their remarkable work demonstrates the power that community-led initiatives can have on those experiencing food insecurity. KEFC has been able to mobilize hundreds of volunteers and raise money to support its mission of providing fresh and healthy food to those in need. The KEFC is an inspiration for other communities to come together and take action towards a more just and resilient future. 100% of all funds raised by Café Coléctive will be published and provided to the KEFC via Open Collective. We want to recognize KEFC’s effort and continue to support their important work.

Do good, indulge, repeat. #cafecolective
