Doing something kind never tasted so good! The Farm on Adderley was proud to launch our Sweet Givings program in 2017. 50% of sales from our special Sweet Givings dessert goes to a charity or non-profit. Desserts will change monthly. Since March 2017, The Farm on Adderley community raised over $10,700 and counting for charities, community outreach programs and great causes.
For November, we will be donating to Masbia Soup Kitchen Network.
Masbia goes to great lengths to provide nutritious food to their clients, including as much fresh produce as possible. The meal, which is served by volunteer waiters, includes a starter salad, beverage, soup, a protein, two hot side dishes and dessert. They place great emphasis on serving their clients with dignity and respect, seen both in the food they serve and in the restaurant-like setting in which it is served. Providing these meals requires immense resources including a full time kitchen and chef, hundreds of weekly volunteers to prepare food, greet the guests and serve the clients. Their hot dinner service caters to the old and frail, the homeless and people who are in a crises situation with no means to cook for themselves. They serve roughly 2,000 hot dinners each week out of their three locations.
The founder, Alexander Rapaport, a Brooklyn Hasid, says his experience being the victim of anti-Semitism forces him to call out hatred against others. So Rapaport, who runs the network of kosher soup kitchens, helped organize a communal show of support last week for a local Yemeni-owned bodega in reaction to President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily banning immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries.
“I don’t want to take anyone’s money under false pretense. Yes, I am personally very pro-immigrant, and if that makes me unqualified for your donation, please don’t give it to me”
