We belive everyone has the right to have access to food.
We are programmatically connected to Trinity Lower East Side Lutheran Parish, but separately incorporated with our own board and separate finances.
Our mission is four fold:
- To provide a reliable source of food for those who are hungry
- To support good nutrition through our meals and with education.
- To offer connections to other services.
- To strengthen community through shared service.
Through our daily soup kitchen and food pantry, we serve around 200,000 meals annually. Our referral center connects families and individuals to services throughout the five boroughs.
People of every background, race, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, religion, and of any age may enjoy the meal without fear of being turned away.
