Grace Community Table
On the first Saturday of each month from October through March, Grace hosts an open, intergenerational meal. Local volunteers and guests of all ages join parishioners as we prepare, serve and eat lunch together. Area seniors are specifically invited, but all are most welcome. After eating, guests make craft cards to be delivered to residents of a local nursing home.
Grace Food Partnership
Our congregation collaborates with the Hastings Farmers Market and Stoneledge Farm Community Supported Agriculture to collect fresh food and distribute it where it is needed most. This ministry responds to the Gospel commission to feed the hungry. Food Partners include:
The San Andres Food Pantry – Food distribution in an Episcopal church serving the Latino community in South Yonkers.
Hastings Youth Advocacy – Providing services for local families in need.
Hastings Family-to-Family – An organization providing food from one local family to another.
The Sharing Community – A multi-service community center assisting people marginalized and in need.
Grace partners with the local Youth Advocate's office to sponsor regular Breakfast Runs into Manhattan, distributing hot breakfast, coffee, toiletries and clothes to homeless people in various parks throughout the city.
Our congregation also regularly collects non-perishable food for the Hastings Youth Council and the Yonkers Food Pantry.
