Brownies, Blondies, & Fruit Bars @ the Sept 1st meal

As Fall rolls along and the season starts to shift to cooler days, the meals are getting heartier as we celebrate our local bounty with menus rooted in beets, turnips, squash, and potatoes. At the soup kitchen, we are harvesting the final vegetables from our garden and relishing the final month of fresh produce donated by our neighborhood CSAs and local gardeners. In the dessert corps, we are looking forward to this Fall and filling the kitchen with holiday treats and seasonal glories. Cheers to apples, pumpkins, butter & sugar!

One of the highlights of our weekly meal is the homemade desserts. They always make our meal complete. To be a volunteer baker, email craigskitchen@gmail.com. Send us the dates you can bake. We will confirm and send you a reminder email the weekend before the Wednesday Meal in which you are participating. If you cannot drop off at the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen before 6pm on Wednesdays, there are drop offs in Greenpoint & Williamsburg on Tuesday & Wed morning. The logistics of it all are pretty easy…
