Sharing food together is a big part of what we do and who we are.
In the Bible, Jesus commands us to feed all of God’s people. So, we developed two methods to help feed each other in New York City, and now we find ourselves feeding ourselves and hundreds of our neighbors every week.
First, on Wednesday evenings, we serve a delicious (truly delicious- real chefs are in charge!) community dinner at the church from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. Volunteers are needed to help cook, set up, serve and clean from 2:00 – 7:30 p.m. As a volunteer, you get to eat the delicious food. If you simply want to eat, please come and feast!
Second, we turn our sanctuary and social hall into a food pantry on Thursdays. We distribute groceries from the church from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. Our pantry uses a client choice model, meaning that you may select what groceries you need and want from within a selection of choices. Volunteers are needed from 2:30 – 7:30 p.m. You are welcome to join us!
If you are interesting in volunteering at either the Soup Kitchen or Food Pantry, please sign up on our Volunteer Hub site.
***Update 12/22/2020: We currently are not accepting new volunteers. Please see other ways you can help on the Hunger Program website.
There are no requirements to participate. All people are welcome regardless of their faith background or economic situation. Please only bring a form of identification such as a driver’s license or an ID card. Come and enjoy some food!
