Aloha Team Swedish!
 
As you all know, the challenges, discrimination and injustices faced by the Asian community have been front and center in the news recently.
 
One way we can help our most vulnerable AAPI families is by supporting the ACRS Food Bank. Over 5000 local families benefit every year!
 
I just signed-up for the Walk for Rice. I'm inviting you to join Team Swedish. The more people the merrier, and together we can raise funds for the Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS) Food Bank.
 
Walk for Rice makes it possible for ACRS to purchase and distribute staples of the AAPI diet, including rice, tofu, noodles and bok choi. Without its resources, many families would go hungry. 
 
In response to COVID-19, ACRS quickly shifted food bank operations from walk-in distribution to home deliveries, providing emergency food in the safest way possible. With help from community partners and volunteers, they are currently delivering 1,200 bags of groceries and 1,300 culturally familiar meals weekly to seniors and those in need, and the demand is growing.
 
Will you join my Walk for Rice team or donate to Team Swedish?  

 
Sincerely,
Soma Subramaniam
