    Sponsor a staple pantry item

    help rethink's mission

    Rethink is offering the opportunity to sponsor a staple pantry item that our culinary team uses in combination with the excess food we receive to create complete meals!


    Food excess is a massive problem, and Rethink is working to onboard as many new food donors as we can logistically handle. If you believe in our mission and are enthusiastic about helping Rethink grow, we have developed this opportunity as a means of fulfilling the basic needs our kitchen has, and giving donors a tangible destination of their contributions.


    Reach out to annas@rethinkfood.nyc in order to receive our culinary team's "wishlist" of staple food items (i.e. potatoes, salt, oils, etc.) along with what it costs our kitchen on a monthly basis to purchase these items. You will be given the choice of what items you would like to help sponsor in order to assist in the creation and distribution of complete meals!
