WHERE: Greenpoint Reformed Church, 136 Milton St

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. Continue reading

Greenpoint Food Drive Start Today Thru Sunday (11/22-24)

It’s that time of year when we begin to engorge ourselves while others go hungry. Let’s not let that happen in our great community of North Brooklyn.

The Greenpoint Lions Club is hosting a canned food drive to collect non-perishable food items that will be donated to neighborhood food pantries.

Donations will be collected at Key Food on McGuiness Blvd and Met Food on Driggs Ave on Friday 11/22 from 6-9pm and Saturday 11/23 and Sunday 11/24 from 9am-5pm.

Food pantries at Saint Cecilia Church, Saint Vincent DePaul Society, Mount Carmel Church and Church of the Ascension, all located in Williamsburg and Greenpoint will receive all collected items.
