We are a ministry of service to the poor, elderly, shut-ins, and anyone who has difficulty accessing services in the New York City area. Every week our members choose which grocery items they want, and then our volunteers pack and deliver their order to their front door. We also deliver fresh groceries to Selis Manor, an adapted learning environment and meeting place for blind youth, adults, and seniors.
We believe that client choice—members choosing the items they want—enhances a person’s dignity while it addresses individual preferences for food. Our food is top-quality and we ensure that our members are offered meats, cereals, fresh produce, eggs, milk, coffee, and dessert every week. But the best and most important thing this great team of volunteers delivers is the joyful spirit of St. Francis.
