And with that, warm soup was suddenly the hottest commodity in cold, dark Red Hook.
According to Judelman and Aviram, the greatest needs in their kitchen are for hot, prepared vegetables and protein, lidded take-out containers, food for kitchen staff and hot coffee. Donations can be dropped off at Calvary Baptist Church of Red Hook at 773 Hicks Street in Brooklyn by 11 a.m. for lunch or 4 p.m. for dinner.
Hot food donations for the Red Hook Initiative can be coordinated through the contacts available on their website: http://rhicenter.org/tag/hurricane-relief/
Occupy Sandy needs for additional disaster zones outside of Red Hook are updated regularly at InterOccupy.net and the group has also established an Occupy Sandy's Wedding Registry at Amazon for people outside the immediate area to offer assistance.
