Lemonaid is a great way for families to have fun while raising money to support the most effective poverty-fighting programs in New York City.

Over the years, Robin Hood's Lemonaid program has raised more than $1,000,000, one refreshing glass at a time. This in turn has made it possible for Robin Hood to provide more than 800,000 meals to hungry New Yorkers.


$1.20 provides a meal for a hungry New Yorker
$30 pays for a weekly MetroCard, allowing a poor New Yorker to travel to and from work

$75 feeds a family of three for a week

$100 provides one night of safe shelter for a homeless NYC family


Grab some markers and poster board and explain how you, together with Robin Hood, are fighting poverty in NYC. For the tastiest lemonade, stir up one of our easy recipes! And, don’t forget the ice!

Woo your neighbors by offering free lemonade! Then kindly ask for a donation of their choice. Read up on our poverty stats and explain to your friends and neighbors why they should support your stand.


Make it clear that you feel passionate about fighting poverty. Get prepared to answer some basic questions about Robin Hood or those living in poverty in NYC.

Sell lots of lemonade to your friends and neighbors. Nothing is more memorable than a great afternoon with your family!

Let us know how it goes! Send an email to lemonaid@robinhood.org along with any photos of your stand.  Please mail in the funds you raise via check; payable to Robin Hood. THANK YOU!
