Lend a hand at St. John’s Community Solidarity Night!
Tuesday, May 16 2022
Meet at St. John's
or at 100 Depot Rd, Huntington Station, NY 11746
Please join fellow St. John’s parishioners in volunteering at Community Solidarity’s Huntington Food Share on Tuesday, May 16th. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about one of our longstanding local Outreach partners and support their amazing work through direct service side-by-side with our neighbors.
Every week Community Solidarity assists thousands of families in low-income communities across Long Island by sharing free nutritious vegetarian groceries and hot gourmet vegan meals. They distribute food that would otherwise go to waste, repurposing excess inventory from local retail vendors. Their mission is to lessen the stresses of poverty while building a more sustainable, mutually supportive community.
The Huntington Food Share is located at the intersection of Fairground Ave & E. 6th Street, and operates every Tuesday night. Volunteers gather at 7 pm to set up and the distribution of groceries begins at 8:15 pm. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, they have been using a drive-through format to keep people as safe as possible.
Hope you’ll lend a hand! Meet at St. John’s at 6:40 p.m. if you would like to carpool, or at the food share at 7 p.m if you prefer to come on your own. Dress for the weather and wear work clothes — the food share operates rain or shine! It would be helpful if we could get a headcount in advance, so please let us know if you are planning to attend.
