Our Services

What are services like?
First, on Wednesday evenings, we serve a delicious (truly delicious- real chefs are in charge!) community dinner at the church from 6-7pm. Volunteers are needed to help cook, set up, serve and clean from 3-7:30pm. As a volunteer, you get to eat the delicious food. If you simply want to eat, please come and feast! Secondly, we turn our sanctuary into a food pantry on Thursdays. We distribute groceries from the church from 8am-11am. Volunteers are needed from 7:30am-11:30am. You are welcome to join us! Please email our volunteer coordinator CB Stewart at [email protected] if you are interested.

What is the community like?
Many of our clients who come to our program are often undocumented or elderly. Due to the recent rise of high cost of living and the rise in rent, many are seeking help from where they can. At the moment there are not too many food pantries or soup kitchens in the north Brooklyn area, which has led many people from all areas of the borough to our church. We hope that you can join and help us in any way so that we may continue our mission.

What if I'm not a Christian?
While the soup kitchen and food pantry are based out of a church it is a secular program - we do not discriminate based on age, sex, religion, etc. In fact, the various different backgrounds of those in the neighborhood helps us to create a safe and helpful environment for our program.
