Over 250 immigrants were placed in a local shelter in January without adequate food access, cooking facilities or resources. The city response has not met the need and people are going hungry.
Flatbush Jewish Center members and other neighborhood volunteers are helping to provide meals on Sundays, to supplement other local organizations that are also stepping up to meet the need. If you would like to help assist with:
- food shopping
- meal prep hosting
- meal prep helping
- driving food to the shelter in Gowanus
- donating other needed items
contact Dina Garfinkel to be added to the volunteers group.
Make a donation to support food purchases via the FJC special fund here.
If you would like to support CHIPs Food Pantry directly with their weekday/Saturday meal distribution you can find out more and donate directly on their website.
