F-O-O-D!!! T-R-A-S-H!!! Volunteer Opportunities


There are two amazing upcoming food-related volunteer opportunities in North Brooklyn, and each involves a fundraiser for a worthy cause in our community. The first is tonight at the Greenpoint Reformed Church where the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen Supper Club will be hosted. Proceeds from the supper club will help benefit Greenpoint Reformed Church’s soup kitchen and food pantry, which serves over a hundred homeless and underprivileged members of the community per week. Click here for more details on this volunteer opportunity.

The second is the third annual TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint event, a block party-style tasting event featuring of 40 restaurants, breweries and wineries from neighborhood. The event is a fundraiser for the completion of the Northside Town Hall Community and Cultural Center. TASTE will be held on the 9th, but there are volunteer opportunities beginning this weekend and ending on the day of the event. For each volunteer shift completed, volunteers will receive a ticket that gives the ticketholder four “tastes” (food samples) and two drinks at the event. Click here for more details on this volunteer opportunity.

And there’s one other volunteer opportunity to spotlight. It involves trash. Specifically, volunteers are needed to help identify every official Department of Sanitation litter basket in Bushwick, Greenpoint and Williamsburg. (This is for a project that seeks to supply North Brooklyn with more litter baskets.) The details are fluid. So if this sounds like something you might want to participate in, please write to, info@burnedgreen.com, stating your interest.

That’s all for now. There are more opportunities down the pipeline. Enjoy the rest of your month.
