The community outreach team from Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens was at Our Lady of Mercy’s food pantry.

The nonprofit was giving out clothing last Friday as well as providing community members with blood pressure screenings.

The team was also informing the public about how their food pantry network operates and how to sign up for SNAP benefits.

Since the pandemic began, CCBQ has provided much-needed support at 56 parish-based food pantries.

If you’d like to take advantage of their next event, then be sure to join them at Our Lady of Presentation this Thursday August 18th from 10 am to 1pm for their ‘Live It Up: Get Healthy, Live Well’ event.

CCBQ will be handing out fresh produce as well as offering free health and dental screenings.
