Re: [newtech-1] Hurrican Sandy MeetUp

Just so everyone is aware. I am collecting items for donation as per my original email today. I work on 34th between 7th and 8th. I have my car here and have already collected some things from a few people from this group. I will be here until about 4 o'clock so if you can make it with some donations I will make sure it goes to actual people in need. 

Again this I am looking for.

Clothes for 9 and 10 year old boys, and a 15 year old girl who's mother works with my wife. They lost everything.  

Most places dont need random clothes because of so many donations so I am just looking for these people.

In my neighborhood the community leaders are asking for Flashlights, Batteries, Candles and any medical supplies and cleaning supplies. 

Please email me directly if you are going to make it.

Thanks
Dan

If you can find the time to get out to Seagate/Coney Island would be more the willing to spend some time there with help handing out food or supplies. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

Dan,

We have put together meetups for tech foodies who are fasinated by crowdsourcing & local food systems.  We created a website called Farm2Me that has a network of 2,000 food makers and farmers in NY, SF and ATX that we tap to organize Free Food Markets in the Rockaways, Staten Island, Coney Island, NJ, any communty that is in need of a warm meal and a little inspiration.< br>
Just today we were in Staten Island and the Rockaways, on Father Copodona Blvd and Beach 129 respectively, with the owners of Bareburger, Candlelight Inn , Palenque , and Uncle Gussy's.  We started 2 days ago with just one vendor, and only 200 meals.  Today, we served well over 1,000.  And tomorrow, well, just tonight we signed GrowNYC, Hot Bread Kitchen, Red Jacket Orchards,Liddabit Sweets, and Ivy Bakery on board.

We're going to need volunteers to help organize and serve this delicious food to multiple neighborhoods at a time.  The power of a chicken wing in a comunity that has been completely wiped out, is like finding a christmas present under the tree,  It's a miracle!  A real miracle, with the emotions and everythng else.  Dan will tell you having been a victim & a family of his own what it feels like to live in a ghost town.  Knowing even after electricity will go on, that the devastation will leave the majority of the town off the grid for months longer.

VOLUNTEERS
We're looking for volunteers to man stations with NYC's most delicious food vendors, side by side.  We need multiple drivers/cars that can pick up 4-5 vendors worth of food and transport to locations in the rockaways, statent island, etc.  

WE COVER
Gasoline is covered for the ride.   We ask that people carpool, one car full of food, the other car full of people.
We run an indiegogo.com/farm2mesandy campaign that we hope to grow to $6,000 to keep this going for at least a month or two.


Any contribution would be helpful!  Volunteers are preferred.

Best,

Garry
Farm2me Team
