It takes just a few minutes, and your feedback will be very important as we plan events for the next year. Even if you can't make the meeting, please provide us with your feedback on our current offerings, and suggestions on how we might improve in the next year. We'll be hosting our community meeting on Zoom, and will be providing registration information shortly. Please complete the survey by Sunday, May 23, 2021.

One of our favorite local groups is Astoria Fridges, community fridges that provide free, accessible food to the Astoria community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you have an excess of food, donate some to an Astoria Fridge near you (click here for a map of locations).
Astoria Food Pantry is located at 25-82 Steinway Street, and accepts donations (read details here).
As the world reopens and "normalcy" returns, donations to mutual aids have slowed down but their line is longer than it has ever been. In fact, AFP had to send folks away last week. They only have one week of funds remaining. Donate to help them get up to 3 weeks of funding!
If you would like to donate but going in-person presents a barrier, feel free to get in touch with Meredith, who is both a WJOA board member and Astoria Food Pantry volunteer.
