St. John’s + Community Solidarity = Holiday Spirit!
7 PM TONIGHT!
St. John’s Night at Community Solidarity
December 18, 2023
100 Depot Rd, Huntington Station, NY 11746
Please join fellow St. John’s parishioners in offering food and toys to neighbors in need at Community Solidarity’s Huntington Food Share on Tuesday, December 18th. This is always an extra big night and your help would be greatly appreciated. There will be lots of food and toys to sort and distribute. Children will be given the chance to choose what type of toy they would like, making it an especially festive and fun event. For the last few weeks we have been serving 200-250 cars, plus walk ups, which translates to close to 800 people per night. We expect even more on the 18th.
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. Dress for the weather and wear work clothes — the food share operates rain or shine! One helpful tip at this time of year is to bring hand warmers.
