Queens Together began when COVID19 shut down NYC in March 2020. We built an organization to empower, represent and support our restaurant community and a “Plate It Forward” program to feed frontline workers and people facing food and economic insecurity. We are a network of Queens restaurants and community groups working together in NYC’s largest borough.
Queens Together is a 501C3 organization with a mission to improve the health and vitality of the diverse multicultural restaurants and food businesses unique to Queens, New York. Together, we empower food businesses with Resources for best business practices, Advocacy with city agencies and officials, Promotional services, and partnerships with Community organizations to support business and alleviate food insecurity in our borough.
