COMMUNITY KITCHENS

In contrast to optimistic news reports about the decreasing unemployment and the strength of the economy, parishes report significant – even rising - levels of need in their communities. Given the prevalence of low-wage and contract jobs, many working families in urban, suburban, and rural communities alike cannot afford the basic necessities such as housing, childcare, healthcare, and transportation, and the United Way reports 45% of all New York households are unable make ends meet (ALICE Report, NY). Requests for emergency food assistance continue to grow, as one in ten households in New York State also struggle with food insecurity (Hunger Solutions NY).
