     On behalf of Interfaith Community Services’ we regularly spend a little more than $9,000 per month to maintain the Evangel-in New-York "Unto the Least of Thy Brethren" Program (distributing hot vegetarian meals to homeless people on the streets of the New York City).

     Please find below an itemized list of the ingredients and expenditures for each month. We hope the pictures we’ve shared will inspire you to donate to help support some aspect of this authentic and worthy effort.

    Ingredient donors can choose to either obtain ingredients and personally transport them to the kitchen or speak to us about how to place an order with one of our vendor suppliers who will deliver your donation to the kitchen.
