Volunteers Needed In Rockaways, Staten Island, Bay Ridge, Coney Island & New Jersey

Bay Ridge Kitchen

Our kitchen in Bay Ridge at St. John’s Episcopal Church still needs volunteers every day.

Please arrive between 9:00 to 2:00. If you show up later you can still help with clean up.

We are still feeding over one thousand people per day and need people willing to cook, prepare food, and drive the food to communities still in need. Drivers are especially needed on Saturday, December 29th despite the (likely) poor weather. If you have a car that you feel safe driving with in slush and snow, please stop by the Church at 461 99th Street, Brooklyn, New York 11209.

Please feel free to email us at sandybayridge@Interoccupy.net or call us at (347) 465-7430.

Thank you for everything!
