Greenpoint Soup Kitchen Supper Club Fundraiser

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!
630-930pm

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 annefay@gmail.com. Seats are limited, so please inform us if your plans change!

Eat Pie & Support Growing Chefs

Yolim's Berry Pie & American Apple Pie. July 4th, 2010

Sunday is National Pie Day, a holiday we have been celebrating in our house for a few years now. I run with a food-loving crowd and have had the pleasure of attending some amazing pie day parties and potlucks. This year we are taking it to a new level — entering the Fourth Annual Brooklyn Pie Contest. Our pie mania is getting competitive… Continue reading

Dance Party Fundraiser. Thurs Nov 4th @ the Woods

Instead of filling up the Woods with produce, on Nov 4th, we will fill it up with dancing bodies!

As harvest season begins to draw to a close and our share pickups become numbered, it’s time to come together and celebrate another wonderful year of great local food, direct connection with farmers and the wonderful community we’ve become.

Our fantastic hosts at the Woods have graciously given their space to us on Thursday, November 4th– letting us have an end-of-year fundraiser at the Woods and donating a percent of the bar to us to help us continue to support some very important neighborhood food security projects. Specifically, the $$ earned on this night will go directly to purchasing Winter Shares for the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen & Egg shares for the Southside Mission Pantry. The more money we make, the more shares we can purchase, and the more hungry people from the neighborhood we can feed…

CSA members Phil Andrews and Rebecca Heinegg will be bringing their dance-ragtime band Apocalypse Five and Dime and the Woods will supply DJs for us to dance our hearts out.

CSA Bake Sale!

In addition, we’ll be hosting a tasting table of treats made from CSA produce.

Don’t forget to invite all your housemates who have eaten from the CSA bounty and your friends who have cooked for and anyone else you know who likes good food, music and dancing. The better the bar does, the better we do!

4th Annual Craig Murphey Memorial Fundraiser – 10/16

On October 16, 2010 Craig’s friends and family will gather at a location to be announced for a party commemorating Craig’s life, and to celebrate the joy he brought to everyone who knew him. Craig was known by most for his roaring laugh, contagious smile and outrageous dancing that kept us all entertained. A hummus cookoff, live music, and the yearly raffling off of prizes provided by the community will take place throughout the night. Craig Murphey was a young community organizer and anti-poverty advocate whose life was cut short in a tragic bike accident in 2007. Continue reading
