Cajun Feast Soup Kitchen Benefit

Greenpointers & Yummy Eats invite you to a Cajun Feast to benefit the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen & Food Pantry on Friday, April 13, 2012 at 8pm at the Greenpoint Church (136 Milton St).

Each week, the Greenpoint Reformed Church Hunger Program provides no-cost groceries and a weekly hot meal to hungry people in Northern Brooklyn. It takes $6,000 per week to feed all these people. Much of the money comes from government food programs, but $1,500 more per week is needed for additional food, plus utilities, building maintenance, volunteer coordination and overall administration.

Join us for a delicious dinner prepared by Joseph of Yummy Eats.

Proceeds from the dinner will be donated to the soup kitchen. It’s a great cause and will be a fun and very yummy night.
