Enough is the new abundance. Sharing what we have so that everyone can have enough.
Under normal circumstances, our worship life centers around the Eucharist table. There is a reason why Jesus is called the Bread of Life and we believe that food nourishes both the body and the soul. Even though we haven't been able to celebrate the Eucharist together, we still value sharing food as a tangible expression of communion with God and each other. So many in our city are struggling right now and this is one small way that we can support and love each other. We provide services for individuals regardless of religious affiliation.
The Saint Peter’s Food Pantry was founded over two decades ago in this spirit and serves thousands of our neighbors in need of food every year. The Food Pantry is open every Saturday from 10:30 to 11:30 AM and is run by a wonderful group of volunteers from across the city. We partner with the Food Bank of New York and other wonderful organizations to help provide this service.
I'd like to donate my time as a food pantry volunteer! How do I get involved?
You can sign up through our Episcopal Charities volunteer portal here, and specify St. Peter's in the information form. Note that we have limited space capacity, so we can only currently take on 12 volunteers each Saturday. If the registration is full, contact Alice at firstname.lastname@example.org for a waitlist.
