The Wednesday Night Dinner Program provides those in need with a balanced meal once a week in an atmosphere of respect and dignity. Guests are greeted in our church for the hour before the meal by a volunteer musician playing the piano as people gather, wait, and take shelter. Each week we serve between 90 and 130 people a hot dinner cooked in our kitchen by our staff cook and plated and served by volunteers. No one is turned away from our program, and we welcome all those who are in need of a meal, whether they are homeless or have a place to live but not enough money to buy food. We serve as an outreach site for other agencies to reach the homeless and hungry residents of New York City and provide referrals and information about homeless services in the city.
Every Christmas, each guest receives a warm hat, gloves and a scarf.
Funds for this program are provided by the Church of the Epiphany and its members, as well as grants and local food services.
