Eagle Street packing up their donation for the Pantry

At the end of every night, we pack together anything that hasn’t been picked up and a member volunteer drives it over to the food pantry. This week we donated 4 crates of food, some eggs, and 2 bucket s of strawberries  to the Southside Mission.  We also had 2 members glean off some beets and onions for the weekly meal at the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen.  It was a good night! Thanks for everyone from our fab volunteers and members, the farmers at Eagle Rooftop Farm, the folks at the Woods, & Maria and Alex in the taco stand for making the night so fun!
