Come dine with us!
Even as we are reveling in the bounty of summer—and we are, thanks to weekly donations from the generous Garden of Eve, Southside CSA, & Paisley Farm CSAs—we begin to plan for our leaner winter months.
Through a series of supper club fundraisers, we are able to provide fresh (local and organic when possible) vegetables for our Wednesday night soup kitchen dinners all through the year. We feel strongly that nutritious, locally produced food should not be a luxury item, but available to everyone in our community.
Come join us for our next Greenpoint Soup Kitchen Supper Club Fundraiser
Friday, 22 July!
Dinner will be a four-course vegetarian meal using the same great local, organic produce that we use in our Wednesday night meal. The dinner is served family style—which we hope adds to the convivial spirit of the event! BYO wine and come early for a special (extra charge) cocktail hour.
Because our menu relies on the most seasonal produce from local farmers, please stay tuned for the exact details of the meal—but a pickle plate is already in the works!
Suggested donation–$20. [btw, we know that this meal is worth WAY more than $20, however, we like creating an affordable night out that almost everyone can afford. Feel free to throw down more cash if you desire!]
You must R.S.V.P. for this event—if possible please do so through the event page on Facebook. If you are a stubborn abstainer (!) from Facebook, you may email email@example.com. Seats are limited, so please inform us if your plans change!

Join us on Sunday June 10th from 3pm until 8pm as we toast some tasty homebrew and celebrate the conclusion of our inaugural run of the Broken Stove Beer. Have no fear, beer share will return in the Fall; stay tuned for details and sign up information. Members of the beer share will be picking up their six-packs. Friends can join in the fun. James has a keg on tap with glasses for $4. He also brings “extras” to sell as well. The first 24 people to buy a beer will get a fancy commemorative Broken Stove beer glass to keep. We will have a potluck spread of pickles and jams going and will probably bust out the grill. Come join us in the garden for a beer!
Broken Stove Beer Share
Sunday June 10th
140 Metropolitan Ave. First Floor
Beer! Potluck! Garden Party!
Be sure to check out one of the best neighborhood traditions, the Giglio Lift, and then cruise over to Metropolitan Ave for an afternoon beer.

Southside CSA gathers at MimoMex Farm
On one of the last weekends in October we rallied to Goshen, NY to check out MimoMex Farm and hang with Martin, Gaudencia, & the whole Rodriguez clan. One of the best reasons to be in a CSA is this direct relationship you can have with the land that produces the food that nourishes your body. Seeing the farm and digging in the dirt always heightens that connection…
