On Friday, May 7th, Hyde hosted a community food giveaway outside of our high school building which provided food boxes to 925 Hyde and Hunts Point community members. Hyde also distributed direct cash assistance for groceries to 300 family members thanks to a special partnership with the Robin Hood Foundation. Through the teamwork of our dedicated Hyde teachers, staff, and board members, the food giveaway was open all day. When reflecting on the event, one parent said, “Hyde to me is an excellent resource and great help to myself and my daughter. They have come through more times than I can think of and I’m so very appreciative for that.”
The event was also adorned with red roses which were gifted to Hyde’s hard-working mothers and mother figures in celebration of Mother’s Day. Not only did this event equip our families with critical food resources and healthy foods, but it also provided our community the opportunity to visit with one another, enjoy the warmer weather, and celebrate Mother’s Day. The Hyde team is thrilled with the success of the afternoon, and we are so glad to have been able to see and assist our wonderful families in Hunts Point.
