As of August 3rd, 2020 we completed our 1st 8-week cycle of Meals of Us! Over 5,000 meals were prepared and delivered at a cost of $3,000 weekly. We look forward to starting cycle 2 and helping to reduce food insecurity in Brooklyn and beyond.
Christa has been identified as a COVID-19 Hero by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams due to her support of the residents of Brooklyn during the COVID-19 pandemic.
**All donations are tax-deductible.
Many non-profits are being skipped over by Corona virus-related aide while their expenses run into the millions. Valuable fundraising dollars have also been cut because of social distancing lockdowns adding additional strain.
Chef Christa of Brooklyn Braised has launched Meals On Us to support the Brooklyn based CAMBA. The project partners with local restaurants to donate healthy takeout meals to some of Brooklyn’s most vulnerable residents. Brooklyn Braised has committed to providing 3 days worth of meals to a CAMBA residential aide facility.
We are seeking funding to support one shelter which houses 59 families including 68 children, most under 12. Each donation helps our partner restaurants provide balanced weekly meals to food-insecure families. With your help, our efforts can keep growing throughout Brooklyn and beyond!
Christa Lynch is the founder and Chef at Brooklyn Braised. She’s also a Sous Chef at Google and Jr. Board Member at CAMBA. Throughout her career in hospitality and food and beverage, Christa has championed building a stronger food ecosystem by participating in creative ways to reduce hunger and protect the environment.
We would like to give a special thanks to the entire team at CAMBA and our founding partner restaurant Gage & Tollner for helping to make this a reality!
