The Advent Food Challenge - Food Programs

Thursday, March 01, 2012


Many people give up things during Lent that they enjoy, but what about those who don't have enough in the first place?  We want to think of them during this Lenten season.

Starting on March 1st, join us for the Advent Food Challenge.  For each week in March, volunteers will gain an understanding of what it is like to live on what those we serve live on - $10.50 per week for groceries or $35 for the community lunch.  Each volunteer will recruit sponsors to help fight hunger in New York City and to raise awareness to what our clients go through every day of their lives.

Every dollar raised will go to fund the food programs at Advent.
