the project

So many friendly people in New York City are struggling with hunger and poverty. Your donations improve the conditions of families and individuals. New York City's population is diverse, and there are over 200 languages spoken in New York City; at the Brooklyn Rescue Mission Food Justice program, we serve a diverse population of community residents. This week, I heard English, Chinese, Spanish, French, African, and Indian. All the people were polite and respectful toward each other.

Brooklyn Rescue Mission serves close to 1000 families a month and about. 9800 meals.

This week at the night pantry, Brooklyn Rescue Mission has opened for guest food guests who cannot make it to the day pantry. A grandmother and grandfather came to receive food for their family of eight; their daughter was fighting cancer and was a nurse who lives with her parents and her three young children. Healthy fresh food provided to community residents improves the health of community residents. Our food bank partners shared the following information with us.

Healthy foods can be remarkable medical cures for many health problems. Feeding a community healthy foods lowers community health problems.

Benefits of good nutrition

  • Reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, some cancers, and osteoporosis.
  • Reduce high blood pressure.
  • Lower high cholesterol.
  • Keep your brain healthy.
  • Improve your ability to recover from illness or injury.
  • Increase your energy level.

Adults impacted by inadequate nutrition can suffer illnesses such as diabetes and high blood pressure, as well as adverse effects on their overall health. Chronic hunger problems can affect a child's physical and mental health and ability to learn in school.

 Thank you for your donations, Rev. Robert Ennis Jackson, Brooklyn Rescue Mission Urban Harvest Center
