One in a Million Award recipient: Chinatown Community Development Center
Where they are multiplying good: San Francisco, CA
How they are multiplying good: Chinatown CDC is a grassroots CBO that serves one of the densest low-income neighborhoods in San Francisco. The incredible team of nonprofit service workers created a program in response to COVID-19 called Feed and Fuel Chinatown which provided more than 122 thousand meals over an 85 day period to SRO hotel and public housing residents in Chinatown and Tenderloin and the Richmond neighborhoods. CCDC partnered with 34 local immigrant-owned Chinatown restaurants to provide culturally competent and nourishing food. The goal of Feed and Fuel Chinatown is to activate struggling Chinatown restaurants to provide meals for the food insecure – with a special focus on SRO residents. Because SROs in Chinatown share kitchen facilities every Feed and Fuel Chinatown meal equaled one less meal an SRO household had to cook in a communal kitchen and thus slowing down the possibility of COVID-19 transmission in congregate living spaces.
