Subways have become the shelter of over 2,000 homeless in NYC. The streets have become the homes of at least 6,000 New Yorkers. The shelter system in NYC is comprised of about 67,000 people--70% of which are families, 40% of which are children. Children make up the largest demographic of homelessness in America.

 

About

Mission: To end hunger by utilizing food excess from catering companies, restaurants, schools, and grocery stores for the homeless and food insecure.

Catering for the Homeless, Inc. utilizes food excess in America for the homeless, poor, and food insecure by connecting catering companies, grocery stores, schools, and restaurants to organizations that distribute their quality food that has been going to waste.

Approximately 133 billions of pounds of food goes to waste each year in America, while 1 in 5 people in this country experience hunger on a regular basis. There are thousands of catering companies and restaurants in NYC alone with events being held virtually every day of the year--and in every neighborhood and borough of the City--where prepared food is being thrown into the trash, as millions are going hungry. Pick-ups can be made at the end of catered events, and the food brought to churches and organizations that can distribute the food in community dinners and lunches for the homeless and needy families in their community. 

There is literally enough food being wasted that no one needs to be hungry. Catering for the Homeless, Inc. (CFTH) is working to greatly reduce hunger throughout the nation by rescuing quality, ready-made food for those who need it.

Protection for Food Partners:

The Federal Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act

     Billions of pounds of food and groceries go to waste each year. To encourage companies and organizations to donate healthy food that would otherwise go to waste, they are protected from criminal and civil liability under the Good Samaritan Food Donation Act.​

     On October 1, 1996, President Clinton signed this act to encourage donation of food and grocery products to non-profit organizations for distribution to individuals in need. This law:

  • Protects you from liability when you donate to a non-profit organization;

  • Protects you from civil and criminal liability should the product donated in good faith later cause harm to the recipient;

  • Standardizes donor liability exposure. You or your legal counsel do not need to investigate liability laws in 50 states; and

  • Sets a floor of "gross negligence" or intentional misconduct for persons who donate grocery products. According to the new law, gross negligence is defined as "voluntary and conscious conduct by a person with knowledge (at the time of conduct) that the conduct is likely to be harmful to the health or well-being of another person."

The text of the bill itself follows:

The Bill Emerson Food Donation Act

One Hundred Fourth Congress of the United States of America

At the Second Session

Begun and held at the City of Washington on Wednesday, the third day of January, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-six.

     The GOOD SAMARITAN ACT: To encourage the donation of food and grocery products to nonprofit organizations for distribution to needy individuals by giving the Model Good Samaritan Food Donation Act the full force and effect of law.

  (A) in the section heading, by striking "model" and inserting "Bill Emerson"

  (B) in subsection (a), by striking "Good Samaritan" and inserting "Bill Emerson Good Samaritan:"

  (C) in subsection (b)(7), to read as follows:

  "(7) GROSS NEGLIGENCE. -- The term 'gross negligence' means voluntary and conscious conduct (including a failure to act) by a person who, at the time of the conduct, knew that the conduct was likely to be harmful to the health or well-being of another person.";

  (D) by striking subsection (c) and inserting the following:

  "(2) LIABILITY OF NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION. -- A nonprofit organization shall not be subject to civil or criminal liability arising from the nature, age, packaging, or condition of apparently wholesome food or an apparently fit grocery product that the nonprofit organization received as a donation in good faith from a person or gleaner for ultimate distribution to needy individuals.

  "(3) EXCEPTION. -- Paragraphs (1) and (2) shall not apply to an injury to or death of an ultimate user or recipient of the food or grocery product that results from an act or omission of the person, gleaner or nonprofit organization, as applicable, constituting gross negligence or intentional misconduct."; and

  (E) in subsection (f), by adding at the end the following: "Nothing in this section shall be construed to supersede State or local health regulations.".

  (b) TRANSFER TO CHILD NUTRITION ACT OF 1966. -- Section 402 of the National and Community Service Act of 1990 (42 U.S.C. 12762) (as amended by subsection (a))

    1. is transferred from the National and Community Service Act of 1990 to the Child Nutrition Act of 1966;

    2. is re-designated as section 22 of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966; and

    3. is added at the end of such Act.

  (c) CONFORMING AMENDMENT. -- The table of contents for the National and Community Service Act of 1990 is amended by striking the items relating to title IV.

Newt Gingrich

Founder & President Crystal Wolfe is the author of a comprehensive book on homelessness, Our Invisible Neighbors: Accounts, Causes, & Solutions to the Epidemic of Homelessness.
 
Synopsis: Homelessness is an issue that is as complex as the people involved. This comprehensive book on homelessness explores the causes that have resulted in this epidemic—the arms and legs, and the heart and soul of it. Our Invisible Neighbors includes 12 personal accounts of people who have been homeless throughout the United States, an account from a man who was homeless as a child in the Dominican Republic, and a chapter with the synopsis of 107 celebrities who were once homeless.

These stories of homelessness are from people of all ages, genders, races, and walks of life. These accounts include experiences of living on the subways, streets, in cars, parks, homeless shelters, and hotel shelters. Most importantly, several chapters explore the solutions of homelessness--how Finland, Canada, and certain cities and states in America have ended or greatly reduced the crisis of homelessness in their countries. This "cause of the heart" can be overcome through understanding, determination, and love for the people who have become Our Invisible Neighbors.

TESTIMONIALS

“CRYSTAL WOLFE HAS DONE MORE TO HELP ME THAN ANYONE. HER BOOK,

AND THE WAY SHE TOLD MY STORY IN CHAPTER ONE OF

OUR INVISIBLE NEIGHBORS, REALLY TOUCHED ME."

GERALDINE GROMWALDT, FORMER HOMELESS WOMAN WHO WAS HELPED BY CFTH

“THIS WORK TAKES ON A MONUMENTAL CAUSE THAT HAS BEEN PLAGUING

OUR SOCIETY FOR SOME TIME. MISS WOLFE IS PASSIONATE ABOUT NOT

ONLY RAISING AWARENESS, BUT ALSO HIGHLIGHTING SOLUTIONS.

THIS WORK IS LONG OVERDUE.

PHILIP GENTILE, SOUP KITCHEN 411, INC.

THE CHALLENGE OF LIVING MARGINALLY FOR NEW YORKERS CANNOT BE OVERESTIMATED. FOOD INSECURITY IS A ONLY PART OF A NARRATIVE THAT INVOLVES SYSTEMATIC INEQUITIES, SUCH AS HOUSING SCARCITY, NON-LIVING WAGES,

ISSUES OF IMMIGRATION, GENDER AND RACIAL EXPLOITATION AND OPPRESSION--

TO NAME JUST A FEW.

FOOD INSECURITY IS A PIVOTAL ASPECT OF WORKING WITH MARGINAL AND HOMELESS COMMUNITIES. TO FIND ALLIES IN THIS WORK IS LITERALLY LIKE FINDING A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OR AN OASIS IN THE DESERT. CUE CRYSTAL WOLFE, AND THE AMAZING WORK SHE IS DOING COORDINATING AND CONNECTING FOOD SOURCES TO VARIOUS COMMUNITIES THROUGHOUT NEW YORK CITY. 

 

AS THE COMMUNITY OF HOPE MINISTER OF OUTREACH FOR THE HOMELESS FOR 30 YEARS, I CAN SAY THAT THE LEADERSHIP, AND THE MINISTRY THAT CRYSTAL WOLFE PROVIDES IS INVALUABLE. WE HAVE HAD THE BLESSING AND GOOD FORTUNE OF WORKING WITH HER, AND SHE ORGANIZES AND CONNECTS US WITH CATERED FOOD FOR OUR COMMUNITY GUESTS.

 

THE RESPONSE FROM OUR COMMUNITY MEMBERS IS ELATION, AS IT PROVES THAT LOVE AND COMPASSION EXISTS OUTSIDE OF THE FAMILIAR CONFOUNDS OF A CHURCH. THE FOOD THAT MISS WOLFE ARRANGES FOR US IS EMBLEMATIC OF A LARGER NARRATIVE, NAMELY THAT AT OUR CORE, NEW YORKERS HAVE HEARTS OF GOLD.

CRYSTAL WOLFE, AND THE MINISTRY SHE PROVIDES THROUGH CATERING FOR THE HOMELESS, DEFINITELY BELONGS IN THIS CATEGORY."

“I AM PROUD TO SUPPORT MS. WOLFE, AND THANK HER FOR

THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS THE HOMELESS CRISIS FACING

NEW YORK, AS WELL AS THE BEST POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS."

NEW YORK ASSEMBLYMAN ANDREW HEVESI, DISTRICT 28

"

"IT'S BEEN A PLEASURE KNOWING MS. WOLFE. SHE IS A PRIME

EXAMPLE OF WHAT SOCIETY NEEDS MORE OF. WHILE SETTING THE

BAR HIGH TO HELP HOMELESS FAMILIES, AND CHILDREN, SHE FOLLOWED

UP WITH ACTIONS THAT HELP HOMELESS FAMILIES LIVE DAY-TO-DAY.

HER DEDICATION AND COMPASSION NEVER RUN DRY, AND I'M

TRULY BLESSED TO KNOW SUCH A CARING PERSON."

DMYTRO FEDKOWSKYJ COMMUNITY ADVOCATE, COMMUNITY BOARD 5 OF QUEENS, NY

 

 

"I THINK CRYSTAL WOLFE IS BRAVE FOR TELLING HER STORY."

SOMEONE IS OUT THERE FIGHTING FOR ME, AND THAT THERE ARE

SOLUTIONS TO HOMELESSNESS, MAKES ME FEEL BETTER."

HOMELESS WOMAN IN ALLENTOWN, PA

ADDRESSING THE SERIOUS ISSUE OF HOMELESSNESS AND HUNGER

IN OUR CITY. I TRULY APPRECIATE HER DEDICATION AND COMPASSION

TOWARD ASSISTING OTHERS IN NEED."

NEW YORK SENATOR JOSEPH P. ADDABBO, JR., DISTRICT 15

THE NEW YORK PRESS

THE

 

"CRYSTAL WOLFE HAS BEEN THE UTMOST PROFESSIONAL, AND EXTREMELY

ATTENTIVE AND RESPONSIVE TO OUR DONATION REQUESTS

AT THE JAVITS CENTER. IN THE CATERING BUSINESS,

FOOD DONATIONS ARE TIME-SENSITIVE AS THE FOODS

DONATED ARE TYPICALLY PACKAGED AS READY-TO-EAT GOODS.

CRYSTAL HAS FACILITATED MANY SAME-DAY PICKUPS WITH HER

NETWORK FEEDING COUNTLESS INDIVIDUALS IN NEED.

 

ASIDE FROM HER PROFESSIONALISM, CRYSTAL IS A TRUE HUMANITARIAN WITH A

HEART OF GOLD. THIS SHINES THROUGH IN HER WORK, AS YOU ARE LEFT

WITH NO DOUBT THAT SHE TRULY CARES ABOUT HELPING THOSE LESS FORTUNATE."

JOHN SHEWCHUK, CENTERPLATE CATERING, @ THE JACOB C. JAVITS CENTER

WHO RESIDED IN MASPETH. OUR INVISIBLE NEIGHBORS IS AN EXTREMELY

WELL-WRITTEN BOOK THAT TAKES A HARD LOOK AT THE ISSUE OF

HOMELESSNESS IN OUR SOCIETY.  HER DEDICATION,

COMPASSION, HAND HARD WORK, TOWARDS, AND WITH, THE

HOMELESS, PROVE THAT ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A TREMENDOUS DIFFERENCE."


 

DEBORAH HARRIS-HALL, VOLUNTEER FROM ST SEBASTIAN'S

 

 

"I DON'T KNOW ANYONE ELSE IN NYC WHO GETS ON THE SUBWAYS

TO FEED THE HOMELESS. CRYSTAL WOLFE AMAZES ME.

I DON'T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT.

HER BOOK WILL LIVE ON FOREVER. IT COULD HELP SOMEONE

10 YEARS FROM NOW. HER BOOK WILL LIVE ON FOREVER."

VALERIE UJUETA, SUPPORTER OF CFTH
