Every week, The Harding Ford Vision, Inc (THFV) provides health and wellness services to underserved communities throughout New York City. We provide them with food and additional resources they need to survive.
We envision ourselves as a conduit to provide nutritious food, senior care services, as well as Pre & Post-Natal support for our local extended community. The program is operated by volunteers that are dedicated to the community.
The Soup Kitchen is staffed by caring volunteers motivated to feed the hungry. Our goals are to provide a healthy appetizing meal to individual and families at no cost. We currently serve an average of 175-225 individual each week.
The program was founded by Virginia Brown in 2004. This program is a support system to many low-income mothers, fathers, grand-parents, and guardians in our community. Our goal is to continue the efforts of the governmental programs such as the Women’s Infant & Children Program (WIC).
We promote healthy eating habits and care for infants and toddlers. Families that come to the Baby Program are recipients of WIC as well. Many families are grateful to our program as we pick up where such programs as WIC leave off. While they are waiting for governmental support, we help to fill their needs. Community members report this program is essential to many families.
This program is a seasonal program to provide support to our senior in the community during the holiday season. All donations are provided by private donors. The basis essential needs of items other than food is much needed especially during this current pandemic crisis in New York City.
