To Our Friends…

 

Please know we will continue to do everything possible to keep you fed.  By continuing to offer a nightly meal we are encouraging people not to follow the law/rules.  We must prepare you and Friends of Night People and take additional actions to reduce spread of the virus.

We will transition to a food pantry only immediately and encourage social distancing during the next few weeks.  If and when you are out of food, you may choose to stop back for our food pantry which we anticipate will continue to operate on Tuesday and Friday from 11AM to 3PM.  After Sunday, 3/22/2020 at 6PM Friends of Night People will open to operate our food pantry to protect everyone’s safety.  The other days we will work to procure and prepare meals for distribution.

Please stay six feet apart while waiting to receive food.  We will perform a simple registration when you arrive to receive food.  Please follow the direction given at the event, remain patient, and be respectful.

We will update our webpage, facebook, and messages posted in our windows to communicate important messages.

If you are in urgent need of food please call 211.  Many public schools are providing to go meals for families with youth, pick-ups are on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11AM to 1PM.

Individuals who use 394 Hudson Street as their mailing address can pick up their mail on Tuesday and Friday during our pantry hours.

      Unfortunately, Putting Hunger on the Run 5k which was scheduled for April 18, 2020 is cancelled. The health and safety of our participants and volunteers is our top priority.
      However the need of our guests and neighbors has not stopped. Friends of Night People will continue to serve as many people as we can during these trying times. We are encouraging runners to make a gift and run the race virtually. Share a photo of you “putting hunger on the run”. Even though we cannot be together this year we still have fun! Putting Hunger on the Run will be back next year! Wear your weirdest, ugliest, most fun running outfit, if you dare, post a photo, and we will host an online pole for the best or worst entry. A special award will be presented to the winner at the 2021 race.
