It has been a busy busy winter so far at the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen: battling the “blizzard” with a hot meal, chopping veggies, slaughtering chickens, the violin serenades and sing-alongs, serving homemade desserts, cleaning projects, dreams of a new stove, lead paint disasters, cute kids in the kitchen, seriously laughing it up with the other volunteers, security patrols, piles of pickles, and lots more fun stuff.

If you would like to volunteer during the weekly wednesday meal at the soup kitchen, contact us @ craigskitchen [at] gmail [dot] com and we will hook you up with info on how to plug in. Basically, kitchen cleaning and early prep starts around 2pm. Chopping and cleaning and general organizing continues on throughout the day as we prep for mealtime @ 6pm. Neighborhood security patrols starts at 5pm (involves wearing a sexy orange security vest and greeting neighbors on the street). Serving starts @ 6pm. (and so does clean up) Clean up runs until 730pm or 8pm. We always need more helping hands and fresh smiling faces.

Don’t have the time but you can spare some cash to fight hunger in the hood; Donations always accepted through the church (see www.greenpointchurch.org)
