A Benefit Dinner for Greenpoint Soup Kitchen with Chefs from Saltie and Diner Journal (10/02)

greenpoint_church_vegWhen 61 Franklin Street Community Garden and Greenpoint Church get together, they throw some of the most fun and delicious fundraiser community dinners – and they’re hosting another one this Friday evening!

A $60 ticket includes an amazing three-course meal with unlimited wine from Dandelion Wine and beer by Sixpoint. Veggies are from the community garden and meat comes from Sun Fed Beef in upstate NY (and there will be a wonderful veggie option for non meat-eaters).

The meal will be prepared by two talented local chefs : Caroline Fidanza owner of Saltie, the cult Williamsburg sandwich shop, and Millicent Souris, who has cooked at Egg, Roebling Tea Room and the Queen’s Hideaway. Both chefs have published their own cookbooks and regularly contribute to Diner Journal.

A fundraising raffle and silent auction will include prizes from:
Alameda
Enids
Brooklyn Kitchen
Allswell
Bar Bolinas
no.7
Moonlight Mile
Lobster Joint
Usha Veda Yoga
Le Gamin
Troost

100% of proceeds will benefit the Greenpoint Church Hunger Program, the largest emergency food distribution center in North Brooklyn, which serves over 1000 of our neighbors each month. They open their doors to the community for a weekly meal and food pantry and make an effort to source ingredients locally, including growing vegetables and herbs in their communally tended backyard garden.

The dinner is this Friday Oct. 2nd from 7 to 10 pm.
It takes place at 136 Milton Street (between Franklin St. and Manhattan Ave.)
Brooklyn, NY 11222

Tickets cost $60 and can be purchased HERE.
Includes a three course meal, unlimited wine, beer and good vibes
