Day 295 (Monday, January 4), Sofia

Mosaic NYC is a small neighborhood church that decided to open a food pantry last April, with the idea that it might help a few hundred neighbors who were suffering in the economic wake of COVID-19. Now, 9 months later, they are serving 2,000 families every week and the need continues to grow. We talk to Sofia, who has dedicated to herself to the project despite her own financial struggles. 

You can support their efforts with a donation by going to and choosing the dropdown marked “COVID-19 Sunnyside/Woodside Food Distribution”
