Need a meal? How about 15? The Compassion Market is open at St. Paul’s Chapel on Wednesdays from 12-3pm. Get 15 healthy, pre-packaged, and shelf-stable meals, enough for five days, as well as personal hygiene kits, by making an appointment on the Plentiful App anytime, or by calling our resource phone number, 917-594-6300, on Monday-Friday from 2-5pm. If you leave a message outside of those hours, you will receive a call-back within 48 hours. Walk-ins will also be accepted on a first come, first served basis, while supplies last. Same-day appointments on the Plentiful App can be made until 10am.

Although Lower Manhattan may not seem like a community where people are in need, it is; and the pandemic has further exacerbated economic inequalities. With sharp rises in the unemployment rate, the cost of groceries, and the number of people seeking assistance from food pantries and soup kitchens, food insecurity is at an all-time high in New York City. Trinity remains committed to helping our neighbors in need of food assistance through this and other programs such as Brown Bag Lunch, Compassion Meals, and other resource connections.

Safety Protocols for Compassion Market Guests:   

  1. In accordance with state and local mandates, all guests will be required to wear masks. 
  2. If someone in line does not have a mask, Trinity's security team will provide them with one.
  3. We will refuse entry to anyone refusing to wear masks.   
  4. Guests will enter through a designated entrance gate and exit through a designated exit gate.    
  5. Hand sanitizer will be available to guests at the gates, entrances, and exits.    
  6. Making an appointment in advance in the Plentiful App will help us limit crowds during check-in and distribution.
  7. No more than 20 guests may be in line at one time. 
  8. Six-foot markers will be placed on the ground so guests can maintain social distance from one another.
  9. Guests must face forward while in line.
  10. Per Feeding America guidelines, only one member from each household should stand in line to decrease the number of people and interactions.
