Low Cost Meals For Roosevelt Island Residents From Family Table Food Ministries Provided By Hope Church Roosevelt Island - December Menu Now Available, Orders Must Be Placed By December 10

Roosevelt Island resident Jim Bates reports on a new low cost food buying option for Roosevelt Islanders. 

I have now assumed the role of contact person for Family Table Food Ministries on Roosevelt Island provided by Hope Church Roosevelt Island.
The way the service works is that once a month a menu is distributed with a deadline for ordering and a pick up location at the Seniors Center (546 Main Street). The December menu is located below and includes pricing as well as item information.

According to Family Table Food Ministries:
Our Mission is to partner with churches, companies and civic-minded Host Sites to provide families and individuals with affordable food and to make a difference in your community, one food box at a time.

Regardless of our income level, most of us are searching for value and money saving ideas to stretch our food dollars at home. The family food budget is one of the largest costs in a household. Our food boxes offer a unique solution to cutting household costs without sacrificing food quality.

How It Works

Family Table Food Ministries puts together a menu each month designed to feed a family of four for a week, or a single individual for nearly a month. We then sell the items as a monthly food box at a deeply discounted price. These food boxes are not a hand-out but an opportunity for those who want to stretch their dollar. Our boxes can contain over 20 lbs of nutritious, top quality food and may include beef, chicken, seafood, sometimes pork, vegetables, fruit, snack items, juices and other items....
Here's what's included in the December Family Box For $38

and the rest of the December  Menu.

The delivery distribution date for December orders is December 21. Orders must be submitted by December 10. Click here to order online or call in person 347-985-7540.
