Since 2005, St. Edmund Prep has partnered with YES! Solutions to work for the Street Corner Gourmet program. On Thanksgiving Eve, Team Edmund prepares over 350 pounds of delicious Stuffing from Heaven and desserts to contribute to a large Thanksgiving meal which is served to those in need on Morningside Drive in Harlem.
The Street Corner Gourmet program was started by a single nun who felt that she should share her Thanksgiving meal with people who are less fortunate. What started as a single person trying to help others has escalated into a huge organization that now feeds the homeless, the needy and the less fortunate on the streets of Harlem every Thanksgiving.
