Amanda Spinosa started this petition to Support Speakeasy Tattoo's Effort to Establish a Community Fridge and

*If you donate money, be aware that the money DOES NOT go to Speakeasy or our cause! It goes to Change.org*


Since COVID-19 hit the US earlier this year, unemployment rates have skyrocketed, launching people into poverty, homelessness and food insecurity. In the US alone, 1 in 9 individuals struggle with hunger. According to Data USA, Peekskill has a poverty rate of 13%, amounting to over 3,000 individuals, and is likely going to continue to climb due to the pandemic.

Just over 50% of Peekskill’s population is BIPOC, and are more than twice as likely to suffer from food insecurity. We believe black lives matter, and food is a right, not a privilege. Providing no-cost access to healthy meals for disadvantaged folks in the Peekskill community is essential in the fight for equality.

Speakeasy Tattoo hopes to open the Speakeasy Community Fridge & Pantry in front of the shop at 25 N. Division St, as a way of providing healthy food for homeless, low-income and working class folks struggling with food insecurity. 

Did you know that 80 billion pounds of food is thrown in the trash in the US every year? We intend to partner up with local restaurants and cafes so they can contribute surplus fruits, veggies and more to fill bellies, instead of trash cans.

Our motto is "Take what you need, leave what you don't." We invite individuals to contribute to the fridge as well. Did you buy too many veggies this week? Do you have leftover ingredients from a recipe? Drop 'em in the fridge!

We strive to keep the fridge vegetarian, as to lessen the risk of food borne illness. No meat, please!

Please help us reach our goal of 1,000 signatures so we can present this petition to Mayor Andre Rainey and get this thing goin'!

As always, Speakeasy thanks you all for the love and support!
