The Rockaway Rescue Alliance's Shore Soup Project a community-based not for profit organization that formed in response to Hurricane Sandy. The Shore Soup Project served more than 50,000 free meals to homebound, displaced, and financially struggling residents of the Rockaway peninsula following the devastating superstorm. This past summer, the Project rolled out an innovative pay-as-you-can, relief food truck. Now, Shore Soup Project is organizing a benefit coinciding with the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, to raise funds to build a permanent brick-and-mortar relief restaurant, SHORE. The restaurant will serve as an anchor for the Rockaway community as it continues to recover and will provide the residents access to healthy food, as well as nutrition workshops, a community garden, and mentorship and employment opportunities.
