Hunger Program

Sharing food together is a big part of what we do and who we are.

In the Bible, Jesus tells 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.

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!

Find more information on our hunger program webpage.


For information on volunteering, please contact for availability.

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!
