Homecoming

 

Open Space Music teamed up with Homecoming, a community-led organization working to support food security for New Yorkers by driving business to local New York restaurants. Homecoming organizes restaurant crawls that explore the incredible diversity of Queens neighborhoods and connect them with the food pantries and organizations serving their communities.


On September 19th, 2021, there was a restaurant crawl that explored the most diverse neighborhood in all of New York: Jackson Heights. Homecoming featured five restaurants that represent the spirit, culture, and vibrancy of the neighborhood. Each ticket sold brought business to partner restaurants and included a donation to a local Jackson Heights food pantry partner, Community Center Services Organization Corp (Community CSOC).


Through a joint partnership with Music for Food and The Dream Unfinished, Open Space Music presented a special community concert at the end of each restaurant crawl in Jackson Heights.
