Hour Children runs a food pantry for food-insecure people in our community. ACC has been volunteering at this food pantry since fall 2013. Volunteers help distribute food to beneficiaries and help the staff and other volunteers clean up. Click here for a testimony from a volunteer.
We also deliver leftover produce from a local CSA farm-share on a weekly basis and occasionally need volunteer drivers to drop off the food. Additionally, we collect non-perishable donations for the pantry every week at our church services.
For more information about volunteering, contact Diaconate@astoriachurch.org.
If you would like to receive food from Hour Children Food Pantry, they are open on Mondays from 2-4PM, Tuesdays from 10:30AM-12:30PM and Thursdays from 3-5PM. Bring an ID to sign up. The number is 718-482-8226 if you have further questions.
