Help us pack 24,000 meals for the Upper West Side.

On Sunday, September 16, join the Upper West Side community and our church in showing love and support for our neighbors living with food insecurity. Help us pack 24,000 meals (or 4,000 meal kits) for the food programs in our neighborhood.




Sunday, September 16, 2018 | 8am - 3pm (5 shifts available)


Advent Lutheran Church at 93rd Street and Broadway



How it Works


This event is made possible by the Outreach Program ( They will provide all the materials for the meal kits, and guide us through the process of packing 4,000 meal kits containing a total of 24,000 meals.

We would also like to find corporate sponsors for the event. If you know of Corporate Foundations or other groups that might provide sponsorship, please let us know.


We need 120+ volunteers on Sunday, September 16! Please consider signing up today and joining our efforts.

We have many jobs, both big and small, and 5 shifts between 8am-3pm on the day of the event.


Another way to help is by making a donation toward the cost of the 24,000 meals. The meals we are packing cost 25¢ each. Your donation of any size helps us cover the cost of the meals, and any excess funds raised will go towards our monthly Community Lunch and Food Pantry programs.

You can also mail your check to: Advent Lutheran Church, 2504 Broadway, New York, NY  10025 with “Food Ministry” in the memo line
