CSM New York Ministry Spotlight: St. Johns Bread and Life

During the summer, we had the opportunity to begin a new partnership with a wonderful organization. St. Johns Bread and Life was founded in 1982 and is located in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood in Brooklyn. The mission of St. Johns Bread and Life is “to bring food to the poor and accompany them on their journey to wholeness by providing necessary services.” They seek to address the hunger and poverty issues in Brooklyn and Queens. They also provide over 1,000 meals every day. Our groups are able to help out by volunteering in their soup
kitchen and food pantry, as well as help out in other ways throughout their facility.

What our groups have to say about St. John’s:
“Working with St. John’s was great. I really enjoyed helping out and talking with the people.”
“I think St. John’s inspired me because everyone was so nice and accepted people.”
“St. John’s was incredibly organized, efficient, and goal-oriented.”
