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!

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 Seats are limited, so please inform us if your plans change!

Update: Supporting the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen

As part of the volunteer requirement, 2010 Southside CSA members have been supporting the weekly soup kitchen meal at the  Greenpoint Reform Church. Whether cooking healthy dishes, serving & cleaning up after the meal or unloading & prepping vegetables from weekend deliveries, volunteers have been getting their hands dirty in support of this community kitchen.  All Southside CSA share families perform 4 hours of volunteer service in support of either the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen or Southside Mission Pantry; with just a few hours of your time you help maintain a vital neighborhood service. It is a really important to us that we work together to support food security in the neighborhood. Continue reading
