About CHiPS Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry

Location:

200 4th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217, US

Mission Statement

OUR PHILOSOPHY SINCE 1971, CHiPS (Community Help in Park Slope, Inc.) has been a community of Brooklyn neighbors, volunteers, and friends who share a common vision to help those who are less fortunate. We prepare hot, nutritious meals and serve them in a caring and dignified environment. All our services are offered free of charge through the generosity of our community.

Description

OUR PROGRAMS: Hot Meals, Pantry Bags, Transitional Residence
Last year,
- our soup kitchen served 170,000 nutritious breakfasts, hot lunches, and bagged lunches-to-go to our neighbors who could not afford a meal.
- our food pantry distributed over 10,000 bags of pantry staples for our neighbors to cook nutritious meals at home.
- our Frances Residency Program, founded by the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor and named after their founder Mother Frances Schriver, sheltered 9 young mothers and their babies, and provided counseling and services.

PARTNER WITH US

We invite you to partner with CHiPS in service, and be part of our wonderful team of schools, churches, synagogues, and individuals whose generous donations have helped CHiPS stay strong for over 50 years. For example, the Park Slope Food Coop has supported us with food donations and volunteers. Our solution is simple: keep it local, and see immediate results.

Your support can make a huge difference. We're talking about basic needs, where a little can go a very long way.
