WHAT: Appetite For Arts: Fundraiser for the Greenpoint Hunger Program
WHEN: Saturday, Sept 23rd, 7pm-10pm
WHERE: Greenpoint Reformed Church, 136 Milton St
DONATION: $50+, tickets and more info here
If you have not heard from your neighbors about the Soup Kitchen + Food Pantry of the Greenpoint Reformed Church’s Hunger Program, the volunteer-based organization is a vital part of Greenpoint, for those in need. The kitchen serves more than 800 hungry people every month in the North Brooklyn Community and beyond. On Wednesday evenings, they serve a delicious community dinner. On Thursdays, they distribute groceries from the food pantry. According to the Church, “It costs about $5,000 per week to host the meal and keep food pantry running,” so they need your monetary support. If you can’t make Saturday’s event, you can still show your support by donating to the Hunger Program here, or by volunteering.
The night will feature:
+ A Fleur Gallery by award-winning photographer Jayson Conner
+ The culinary, visual and performing art talents of our volunteer community
+ Gourmet hors d’oeuvres crafted by Hunger Program Chefs Elizabeth Haskett & Lindsay Scoble
+ Artfully designed cocktails & mocktails by Sips by Sofi
+ Standup comedy performance by comic Kerryn Feehan
