More about the event

While most will be thinking of fireworks, and barbecues in celebration of our National Holiday, we want to focus our attention on those who may not have a warm meal. We will be serving free hot meals, snacks, and drinks to all those in need. In addition, we will be offering fun activities to engage the younger members of our community.

Over a million New Yorkers will not be able to celebrate this 4th of July due to hunger and poverty. Help us bring light to the issue of hunger in our local community, which is not only a community issue, but a long standing issue within our society. So far, Project You "Lunch For Friends", is expecting over 1000 attendants from the local Women in Need Shelters in the Brooklyn area, as well as, other local community members and political leaders to speak.

We thank you for your support. If your unable to attend the event and would like to make a donation please contact us at 718-382-4424 or at our website
