This past Sunday, May 19, over 1,000 people gathered on 86th Street between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive for WSCAH’s third annual WSCAH ROCKS THE BLOCK event and our 45th Anniversary.

We had a beautiful, sunny afternoon packing healthy food for distribution to WSCAH customers (and enjoying delicious bites from Tiki Chick & coffee from Buunni), advocating with FRAC to stop the precipitous 56% cuts to the Community Food Connections budget (which supports over 500 pantries & soup kitchens in NYC), listening to powerful readings of poetry and essays by NYC student authors, and dancing to music courtesy of Emy and the Epix and DJ Kreme. And we packed over 22,400 pounds of healthy food, enough for 19,000 meals!

Thank you to all our donors, volunteers, customers, student writers, public officials, and community partners that came together this year to make ROCKS THE BLOCK a success.
