Marilena’s Meals

Food Outreach Ministry
I was hungry and you fed me.”  Matthew 25:35    

Every month, a team of faithful volunteers assemble and deliver 80 bagged meals to New York City’s most vulnerable: those without food and shelter. We operate rain or shine. 

We invite volunteers that would like to help us prepare and distribute meals to attend on the dates below. Our team begins assembling the bagged meals at 10:30 am in the church hall on the lower level. We distribute the meals near Penn Station immediately following the Divine Liturgy. 

We are actively looking for sponsors and volunteers to support this ministry. Here are a few ways to do so:

  • Donate the full amount to cover one month of our meals program: $350
  • Partial sponsor (share however much you can offer) or split with a friend
  • Volunteer to sponsor specific items (gloves, paper goods, and more — please contact Katerina to make arrangements prior to purchasing these items).
  • Join us for assembly or distribution (or both!) on the dates listed below.

If you are interested in sponsoring in one of the ways listed above, please contact Katerina Gkionis at
