The Brooklyn Relief Kitchen will be on hiatus, as electrical renovations and repairs begin at Old First Church. We hope to be back at Old First in the Fall.
This week is our final distribution of milk, chicken and produce bags to 600 families through our frontline partners St Marks UMC Church, Caribbean Women’s Health Associates and the West Indian Day Carnival Association, as well as our final week of distributing hot meals to Camp Friendship and Heights and Hills.
For the time being, we are suspending our fundraising activity on Go Fund Me until we return to the Kitchen. We’ll be sharing our remaining resources with our frontline partners and using this hiatus-time to complete some much-needed renovations to the church kitchen. We thank all our donors and volunteers for the incredible support that enabled us to distribute over 100,000 hot meals and well over 1 million pounds of produce, milk, meat and pantry items to our neighbors in need.
Together we have made a meaningful impact on the lives of thousands of families in food crisis throughout this last, very challenging year.
Andy, Piper, & Kate and all our volunteers!
