Greenpoint Soup Kitchen

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. Continue reading

Let’s ALL eat like pigs today! #feedpeople

Isn’t it nice to sit around and stuff your face? This is every American’s God-given right on Thanksgiving! Sadly some people don’t eat anything today – including many people in Greenpoint.

So let’s keep ALL of our neighbors full and plump this Thanksgiving, too. That’s what it’s all about, right? Sharing and caring…

If you make one click on your computer today – consider making a donation in ANY amount – $5, $10 to Greenpoint Soup Kitchen, a local non-profit that feeds the hungry not just on Thanksgiving but every week of the year!

Have a wonderful restful day and weekend!

Food Anxiety! Sicilian Sunday Supper #7 Recap (Photos & Recipes!)

Each first Sunday of the month we have a Sunday Supper at a new location in Greenpoint with a new chef and each first Sunday Supper of the month I am nervous! There is a lot to do and a lot of unknowns. Like will it rain? Do we have enough utensils? Will the chef be on time?

Sunday Supper #7 was particularly more stressful because I was the chef and I suffer from Food Anxiety – which is a clinical neurological condition that involves worrying about making enough food for your guests. One of the symptoms is making way too much food! Everyone in my entire crazy family has this problem – it’s a genetic mutation on the Sicilian strand of DNA I inherited from my father Rocco.

400 Lunches Needed For Frail Seniors Tomorrow (Monday 11/5) Via Greenpoint Soup Kitchen

Message from Pastor Ann:

“We just got a request from Councilman Brad Lander’s office: 400 lunches are needed for medically frail seniors staying in the shelter at the Armory. We need them delivered by 1pm.

Here’s the plan: Show up at the Greenpoint Reformed Church 136 Milton St. at 9am.

If you can, please bring bread, fruit, beverages, etc.

We’ll be working hard on this from 9am to noon. At noon, we’ll pack them in my car and drive them over.

For those of you staying up late, feel free to bake cookies, brownies, etc. and drop them off tomorrow morning.

Pastor Ann is going to attempt to coordinate this, since Ann Carroll needs a break. So please, be patient with her.

If anyone is good at organizing stuff like this, feel free to let her know and she’ll gladly put you in charge. Thanks for all the great work.

Please forward this around as I’m a little worried we might not have enough volunteers since most folks are going back to work and it’s early in the day tomorrow.”

Note: Let us remember that our local Greenpoint Soup Kitchen is not only feeding hungry Greenpointers but is working night and day to prepare food for victims of Hurricane Sandy who are staying in shelters.

If you cannot volunteer tomorrow, consider making a donation directly to Greenpoint Soup Kitchen, to help support these efforts.
