On Friday, Sept. 22, 2023, renowned New York rapper Styles P’s nonprofit organization, Farma Cares, joined forces with the Yonkers Family YMCA to introduce their inaugural ‘Plant-Based Community Dine-In Night.’ The event, which took place at the local YMCA’s gymnasium in Yonkers, New York, was a tremendous success, providing nutritious meals to over 200 Yonkers residents, including families, seniors, and young individuals.
Styles P, who has dedicated more than a decade of his career to promoting community health through ventures like Juices For Life and Farmacy For Life, launched Farma Cares as an extension of his commitment to bringing the benefits of fresh produce to underserved communities. This collaboration with the Yonkers Family YMCA marks the beginning of a series of monthly Plant-Based Community Dine-In Nights to serve Styles P’s hometown community.
The Yonkers event follows the recent unveiling of a mural in the South Bronx, dedicated to Styles P’s group, The LOX, highlighting the rapper’s impact on the community.
