2021 Annual Report



Transforming lives of those in need


We fight food insecurity

through EC operated Bulk Buy and Farm to Pantry programs and by providing wraparound services to food pantries and community kitchens.

We create youth opportunities

for the next generation through children's arts, academic enrichment and summer recreation programs.

We strengthen communities

through skills-building programs that offer a path to success for unemployed workers, recent immigrants and the formerly incarcerated re-entering society.

We protect the most vulnerable

through health and wellness programs that improve quality of life for senior citizens, the homebound, and people with substance-use disorder.

In the true spirit of outreach, every program is free of religious content, welcoming one and all. 


Leadership Letter

Dear Friends,

As we look back on the past year, we want to express our gratitude to all of you for your unwavering support of Episcopal Charities. The ongoing pandemic has impacted every aspect of our lives, and the programs we support have not been immune to its effects. However, with creativity, perseverance, and dedication, our staff has come together to ensure our programs remained available to the most vulnerable across our large and diverse diocese when people most needed help. 

As a community of outreach programs, Episcopal Charities is distinguished by the deep connections each of the parishes within our network has to the communities they serve throughout the ten counties that make up the Episcopal Diocese of New York. Our programs give us a unique perspective and access to real-time data from people in each community. During the height of the pandemic, Episcopal Charities hosted weekly calls with our program leaders which helped us gain a reputation as a reliable place for larger nonprofits and other funders to hear what was happening “on the ground” and for developing and operating innovative programs that responded to need in real-time. 

Throughout the year, Episcopal Charities had a significant impact on individuals and families in the communities we serve. Our focus on building relationships and responding to needs ensured that our support was tailored to the unique needs of each community. Through this approach, Episcopal Charities provided vital assistance to 100+ programs across the Diocese, ranging from food banks and shelters to youth programs and healthcare services. We worked closely with program leaders to ensure that their clients had access to the resources they needed most. This support had a tangible impact on the lives of many, helping to improve their overall health and wellbeing, and providing a critical sense of hope for the future.

We are proud to say that, despite the challenges of the pandemic, Episcopal Charities awarded significantly more grants than ever before in our history. We helped connect those in need with the generosity of caring donors and the energy of dedicated volunteers. From fighting hunger through food pantries and community kitchens to creating opportunities for the next generation through children’s arts, academic enrichment, and summer recreation programs, our work is critical in transforming lives.

Finally, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to all of our supporters. Your generosity has allowed Episcopal Charities to continue its support during this tumultuous time. Our work would not be possible without you. We look forward to continuing our work together and building stronger communities throughout the Diocese.

Thank you,

Farm to Pantry

Responding to food insecurity in our communities

In response to dramatic pandemic-related increases in food insecurity in 2020 and again in 2021, we at Episcopal Charities realized our traditional approach of providing pass-through grants to food pantries was less effective in addressing rising demand and supply shortages – this led to our piloting the Bulk Buy program in 2020 and the Farm to Pantry program in 2021.  Our food access partners struggled to source fresh, nutrient dense, culturally relevant foods due to structural inadequacies in the food supply chain and lack of availability at food banks. They needed a reliable source for the healthy, whole foods their communities requested, without reliance on a ‘middle man’ – we found that source at Glynwood Center for Regional Agriculture in Westchester, which connected us directly with local farmers and enabled us to launch Farm to Pantry. 

Leveraging and connecting our network of partners

Farm to Pantry allowed us to continue to leverage our position as a locus and intermediary of community need by connecting pantries directly with Hudson Valley farms run by under-represented (women, LGBTQ+, and BIPOC) farmers. As a result, we are now able to provide thousands of pounds of farm-fresh, local, and culturally appropriate foods to our food network. In its pilot year, we were able to introduce Farm to Pantry to nine of our existing partners located throughout the Diocese of New York and match them with 20 local farms. 

Our partnership with Glynwood has provided expertise we did not have - including providing technical support and facilitating communication between the farmers and our partners so that together they can begin to plan what the farmer will be growing for a particular community. They match farmers of particular cultural backgrounds with partners serving those same populations so that Holyrood Pantry in Washington Heights can request cilantro and tomatoes from Latino-run R& R Produce, and Ascension pantry which serves primarily Asian populations in Lower Manhattan can order bok choy from Asian-run Choy Division Farm.

How the program works

The farms and partners are selected through an application process. We then designate a food budget for each program based on client needs and the number of families served per month. They identify what produce is needed and what can be grown. Wach farm is paid in full for the growing season - this allows the farmer to purchase seeds, hire workers, prepare their fields for the intended crops and grown them in time to supply our partners in-season. 


In 2021, we purchased and delivered 30,000 pounds of fresh produce from farms directly to families and individuals in our immediate communities. In both rural and urban areas of the Diocese there is often limited access to grocery stores and limited access to healthy foods which leads to poor nutrition. The Farm to Pantry program provides the health benefits of supplying nutrient-dense food that compliments cultural preferences, reduces our carbon footprint, and supports small minority farmers and the local economy.

Youth Opportunity Grants are awarded, with consultation from our Advisory Committee, to parish-based outreach programs addressing the needs of children and youth in communities throughout the diocese by providing academic enrichment, exposure, instruction in the arts, and safe spaces for youth to grow and develop. During this time of uncertainty, some of the most vulnerable among us are our youth. These programs provide a stabilizing and important part of the social safety net.

These include the homeless, immigrants, people impacted by the criminal justice system, and individuals living with chronic illnesses. As the COVID-19 crisis continued from 2020 to 2021, many of our programs transitioned into food access to combat the rising food insecurity while we also started funding new food access programs.

Bulk Buy Grants

Total awarded: $146,223.79

The Bulk Buy grant begun in response to the collapse of the food network due to the COVID-19 pandemic and aggregates demand among feeding programs to negotiate discounted rates from a local commercial wholesaler. Most of our programs are community-based so they cannot leverage huge budgets to negotiate lower prices and favorable delivery terms with a wholesaler. Bulk Buy allows programs to work directly with wholesalers to purchase food and supplies, billing Episcopal Charities. Through this initiative, feeding programs can supply culturally relevant foods as well as expensive foods (like proteins) that are typically expensive to buy or difficult to acquire.

2021 Virtual Tribute Dinner

A Story of  Transformation

On Thursday, November 18th, instead of gathering at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine hundreds of the Episcopal Charities community gathered virtually once again for our annual Tribute Dinner. Lauren Jenkins Chung and Felicia Eve, our evening co-chairs, pulled together an incredible night that helped tell the story of EC in 2021 and the innovative programs that have transformed how it responds to the growing need because of the Covid-19 pandemic. That night alone helped raise nearly $640,000 to help EC continue to respond to the call from our parish partners throughout New York City and the Hudson Valley.

Ways to Help

You can help others by partnering with Episcopal Charities in any of the following ways:

Connect w Us
Charity Volunteers


VOLUNTEER: Check out our volunteer calendar for opportunities at a variety of program sites - read to a child or help serve a meal, email

CONSULTANT CORPS: Do you have specialized skills? Join our Consultant Corps and put your skills to work for programs in need of customized services.

GROUP VOLUNTEERING: Arrange for a corporate or church group to volunteer at one of our program sites, email

The Volunteer Program has 4 Pillars:

  1. To recruit and  place individual group volunteers in outreach programs.

  2. To recruit members of the Consultant Corps program, which places volunteers with specialized skills in community outreach programs. Consultant Corps members support programs with videography, fundraising and grant writing, strategic planning, language justice, urban agriculture, and more. 

  3. To offer social justice and contextual education, and reflection activities for volunteers throughout the Diocese.

  4. To support and create resources for volunteer management infrastructure at outreach programs across the Diocese.

Helping Hands


DONATE: Every gift helps, regardless of its size, and will be put to good use.

CORPORATE MATCH: Give through your employer. Many companies support Episcopal Charities through matching-gift programs, event attendance, and employee-recommended grants. Inquire if your company provides these benefits, and email with questions.

GIVE FROM YOUR IRA: If you are 70.5 years old or older and have a traditional IRA, you’re eligible to make a gift to Episcopal Charities directly from your IRA — tax-free. Contact us for more information.

INCLUDE EPISCOPAL CHARITIES IN YOUR WILL: You can help transform the lives of those in need for years to come by naming Episcopal Charities as a beneficiary of your estate.
