Doing something kind never tasted so good! The Farm on Adderley was proud to launch our Sweet Givings program in 2017. 100% of sales from our special Sweet Givings dessert goes to a charity or non-profit. Desserts will change monthly. Since March 2017, The Farm on Adderley community raised over $7,500 and counting for charities, community outreach programs and great causes.
For Pride Month, 100% of June’s Sweet Givings dessert sales will be donated to New Alternatives
Recent studies indicate that LGBTQ+ youth comprise nearly 40% of the homeless youth population in New York City. At an estimated 7% of the total population, young people in our community are disproportionately affected by homelessness and are more likely to experience bullying, violence, trauma, and substance abuse than their heterosexual peers.
Every night, thousands of LGBTQ+ youth and young adults have no place to call home in NYC. Whether they have been kicked out by homophobic relatives, forced to flee conservative communities, aged out of foster care, or come from families torn apart by poverty and drug abuse, these young people sleep in city parks, on the subway, and in public facilities like Port Authority and Penn Station. A fortunate few might find a safe haven in one of NYC’s housing programs or shelters designed for this population, but such facilities are scarce and so underfunded that most youth wait months to gain entry. Others are subjected to shelter in large, city-funded institutions where they frequently fall victim to homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, harassment, and violence.
New Alternatives is advocating for change. They are dedicated to the care and well-being of these young people and at the forefront of combating the epidemic of poverty and homelessness in New York City's LGBTQ+ youth population. They aim to provide all youth who come to us for support with the tools and resources they need to thrive.
June’s Sweet Givings treat will be a Blue Hyssop Panna Cotta with Crispy Cinnamon Cake
