Award-Winning Chef Carla Perez-Gallardo ’10 Opens Community Refrigerator at Her Hudson, N.Y., Restaurant Lil Deb’s Oasis
Staffs at Lil Deb’s Oasis and Kitty’s Market have joined forces to establish two community refrigerators that will be co-managed by local activist volunteers. The fridges are meant to be self-sustaining, with produce and other goods provided by local donors. Lil Deb’s Perez-Gallardo is committed to making up any shortfall. “I feel it’s especially important right now, when so much is up in the air and so many people have lost their jobs, to keep food accessible,” she says.

Reflecting on the Moment
Reflecting on the Moment is a collaborative initiative spearheaded by the Dean of the College in consultation with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The new series invites alumni/ae, current undergraduates, faculty, and staff to have honest conversations about the current moment we are living in the wake of a global pandemic and systemic police brutality. The aim is to present models of inclusive dialogue, to draw from the rich personal experiences and expertise of our ever-developing and ever-changing community, and to present approaches for community activism and engagement in the name of racial equity and justice.
