The wonderful volunteers at Congregation Beth Elohim are not alone in their continued post-Sandy work. While many affected families are still living in houses without working kitchen and with limited access to fresh groceries, the Sandy Relief Kitchen continues to prepare and deliver hot food as well. They are seeking volunteers so that they can continue these necessary efforts.
The kitchen operates out of Old First Reformed Church (729 Carroll Street) on Wednesdays from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and Thursdays and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Volunteers are needed to peel and chop vegetables, portion food, make sandwiches, keep the space clean, and organize supplies and food in the pantry.
The kitchen also continues to donations of canned food, including any beans, tomatoes, tuna, peas, corn, and stock (vegetable, beef, or chicken).
If you’re interested in volunteering, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
