Moldovan American is an American citizen who is descended from people from Moldova or a Moldovan naturalized in U.S. According to the 2000 census, there are 7,859 Moldovan Americans in the United States. However, the American Community Survey indicated that the number of Moldovan emigrated in United States between 2007 and 2011 exceeds the 31.000 people. Most Moldovan Americans are Orthodox Christians. Moldavan communities exist in cities such as New York and Washington, D.C. So, Moldovans have restaurants of Moldovan food in United States, in places such as the aforementioned New York City.
In addition, several Moldovan associations can be found in the United States, such as the “Casa Mare” (in Washington DC), the "Moldova for democracy and development" (in Brooklyn, New York) and the "Grigore Vieru" (in the same city).  Another important Moldovan association is "The Moldova Foundation", a no-profit organization localized in Washington, DC and established in 2003, whose main goal is support to the population in Moldova to establish economic reforms and a democratic system in the country (with "freedom of speech, pluralism and private initiative"), through support of the United States and Europe Union.
