From the fundraising page:

“For the 2022 video/2023 fundraiser, AFTERSUN director Charlotte Wells has kindly selected a New York City non-profit called Food with Fam, and I couldn’t be happier that she did.
A former mutual aid group that began during the early days of the pandemic and incorporated as a nonprofit in 2022, Food with Fam is a small but extraordinary group that hosts biweekly food distributions and other initiatives throughout NYC to help feed families and individuals in need.”
