St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church is launching a weekly Pop-Up Pantry and Summer Music Concert Series to address hunger and provide musical respite during the summer while New Yorkers continue to cope with the prolonged economic and social fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Pop-Up Pantry will begin on Tuesday, June 16, from 10:30 am to 12 noon, resuming the church’s direct service to address food insecurity in Brooklyn, which has been on pause since mid-March. Each Tuesday, the pantry will provide non-perishable food items to those who need them at the entrance of the church at Clinton and Montague Streets in Brooklyn Heights. Pantry guests are asked to wear masks and maintain social distance.
The Summer Music Concert Series begins on Thursday, June 18, at 5:30 pm, in the Peace Garden on Clinton Street, beside the church entrance. Musicians performing in different genres will play a 30-minute set in the newly landscaped garden for an audience of passersby invited to listen from the sidewalk while keeping safe social distance. The weekly music-making will provide a balm for a city of people on edge in the midst of continued uncertainty. The concerts will be recorded and posted on the parish website for all who cannot attend to enjoy.
