Your Donations Can Help!
Food program still open and serving people safely
Message from Rev. Robert Ennis Jackson
So many people in New York are facing the loss of employment and food insecurity as the COVID-19 crisis continues to evolve, Brooklyn Rescue Mission Urban Harvest Center (BRMUHC), and its emergency food program will continue serving hungry families.
Many people are facing social and work isolation, financial hardship, or may even have a loved one in the hospital. We also are witnessing many concerned neighbors who are coming out to help those in need and lending a helping hand. During this challenging time, I want to outline the steps we are taking to help as many people as possible and those in need in the next several weeks.
We’re here for our community
- We are also doing everything we can to take care of our team and enable us to provide the best possible service to all our customers.
- During the upcoming weeks, BRMUHC will use a simple system called grab and go, a fast and safe way to provide food to the community.
- As soon as we have received permission to re-open our appointment system, we will begin to make modified appointments limited to 5 people every 30 minutes. This number of people will ensure that there is room for social distancing inside our facility.
How you can help
Every day, we receive phone calls and visits from individuals and families who are hungry and distressed; they are worried about when the family’s next meals are going be on the table.
Your contribution will impact many families during this Covid-19 crisis. A $50, $100, $250 gift or more will help provide hundreds of families an opportunity to eat wholesome meals at their table.
