Y-WE has always been responsive to the needs of our community. When this pandemic started, we knew that alum and youth would need ways to feel connected. We immediately reached out to our youth, set up online programming and support networks, and extended our reach to those beyond the Puget Sound area.
We also started to connect our community to needed resources. We have been delivering meals and food boxes, with our Urban Fresh Food Collective (Y-WE, Resistencia Coffee, Seattle Parks & Rec, Wasat, Gola’s Kitchen, and local neighbors) and have served 1500 meals to the community center. These meals have come from POC-owned restaurants local to South Park. We’ve also coordinated with Byrd Barr Place to donate 800 Salare meals to South Park.
