Masbia of Borough Park
Program Type Description:
Kosher food pantry and soup kitchen
Masbia is a nonprofit soup kitchen network and food pantry, everyday providing hot, nutritious meals for hundreds of New Yorkers in desperate need of food. Alongside our hot-meal program, we also give out bags of much needed groceries every week to those with not enough at home, through our weekend take-home package program. Masbia works to not only feed the hungry, but to provide free, wholesome, and delicious meals for people in a restaurant-style environment, with volunteer waiters serving each person with respect and dignity. For the first time, Masbia of Boro Park is serving Shabbos meals.
Kosher services provided. Requires reservations for Shabbos lunch.
