Although Lower Manhattan may not seem like a community where people are in need, it is. Since the Brown Bag Lunch Ministry began, volunteers have served 200 people a week. In addition to distributing brown bag lunches to those in need of emergency food assistance, volunteers pack the brown bags and help in connecting guests with resources and benefits. The program hosts volunteers from Trinity’s congregation, staff, and community partners.
Trinity Wall Street is committed to the Brown Bag Lunch Ministry to help transform our community, our neighbors, and ourselves. Through its grant-making, Trinity also supports community partners who are addressing the roots of poverty—the reason people need brown bag lunches in the first place.
Trinity offers emergency food assistance seven days a week at one location only:
St. Paul’s Chapel
Sundays at 2pm
Mondays - Saturdays at 12:45pm
