Epiphany's Pop-Up Food Distribution
On Saturday, June 15 members of the Church of the Epiphany, in conjunction with the Food Bank for NYC and Jan Hus Presbyterian, distributed 13 pallets of fresh produce, free to our neighbors on the Upper East Side. It was a wonderful morning of getting to know our neighbors and educating them about the fact of food insecurity in the area. While it is a wealthy neighborhood at a glance, there are many who are shut in, disabled, on a fixed income, struggling to keep their kids in good schools, young people working in a gig economy - all are people who may struggle to access good, nutritious food.
Thanks to a grant from the New York City Council, Epiphany was able to pool its resources with those of Jan Hus in order to provide wonderful fruits and vegetables to those who needed it.
And remember, as we enter the summer months, we are always in need of volunteers for our Wednesday evening Dinner Program, which feeds over 100 hungry people each week and has since 1985! Please contact our front office for details on how to volunteer.
