Feed Asian Seniors Art Raffle
We’ve partnered with Radical Family Farms and several Asian American artists and raffled off a collection of art, prints + more, with all of the raffle proceeds benefiting Radical Family Farms’ free CSA program for low-income Asian seniors in Bay Area Chinatowns and beyond. Through our raffle, we were able to fundraise over $7000 and fund an additional 11 produce subscriptions (each subscription was 13 boxes, delivered every two weeks to low-income Asian seniors).
Original raffle post is below.
Let's show our Asian elders and seniors some love! Studies show that Asian seniors are less happy and receive less support than elders of other races. Many Asian seniors face food insecurity. Recent reports indicate food insecurity is worsening in Asian seniors due to increased racial violence. With all of this in mind, help us feed our Asian seniors and make them feel supported!
