Queens: HELP OFTEN – Masbia Rego Queens – November 2015

November 11, 2015 at Masbia on Queens Blvd: Community Supported Soup-Kitchen & Food-Pantry in Queens.

Our Help Often crew had a great time at Masbia Rego Park in October, so we’re going to make a habit of it!

But wait, what’s Masbia?

Masbia is a Kosher soup kitchen that feeds everyone who’s hungry. They are present in Boro Park, Flatbush, Williamsburg and Rego Park, Queens, and they could use a hand. Here’s a bit more about the Rego Park center, where we intend to help out first:

“Known as the “fre

e restaurant,” Masbia serves a three-course meal five nights a week in a restaurant-like setting that offers its patrons the privacy and dignity that everyone deserves. But every day, the challenge of feeding the needy continues to grow. The more Masbia feeds, the more it depends on generous people in the community to keep its doors open.

The Rego Park soup kitchen operates in a storefront on a commercial strip on Queens Blvd. and was beautifully renovated, with moldings, drapery to protect people’s privacy, and adorned with paintings of shtetl life by a Jerusalem artist. The renovation includes Jerusalem stone paneling, which gives the space an extra special touch. The decor of the place makes you feel like you’ve entered a high-end New York restaurant. A foyer in the front was built as a waiting room so that people don’t have to stand in a “bread line” outside.”

Our mission, should we choose to accept it (and we do!) is as follows:

“We have a weekly pantry program where we distribute grocery bags to hundreds of families in need who come from all over the city. This takes place on Thursday morning through the afternoon. We do much of our preparation for this large weekly project on Wednesday nights at our kitchen in Rego Park, Queens. Tasks include bagging produce, organizing and setting up our pantry, and other simi

lar tasks. We could set up such a project for Wednesday October 21st at our Rego Park site from 7:00pm until 9:00pm, and it would make a big impact on our level of preparedness for pantry day.”

Let’s do it!

RSVP if you have a fairly high degree of certainty you can be there to lend a hand for a very worthy cause. It’ll be a great opportunity to hang out with fellow assemblers and other volunteers, and most of all, to HELP OFTEN.
