First one in Patchogue
Harmony Cafe (a non-profit organization) has joined forces with the newly formed group, The Sharing Tables of NY. The Sharing Tables of NY was founded by Mary Kate Tischler of Seaford after reading about the concept in a magazine.
The concept is so simple yet the impact is tremendous! Anyone can do it; you get a table and you leave food, toiletries and cleaning supplies. I have even seen people leave out clothes and other useful items. You can set the table up in front of your house or business. Some people leave it out 24/7; you can make up your own hours. The table should not be patrolled, its purpose is to go by the honor system. Plus, you are respecting people who may not want to be witnessed seeking help. The Sharing Tables of NY will supply you with their sign for a small fee. You can contact Mary Kate and she will arrange it for you. She will also put you on her map for the public to view.
On Thursdays, Harmony Cafe engages in food outreach – we have chan
ged our model for aid during the Covid-19 crisis. We have hosted food drives, grab ‘n’ go sites, and free local food deliveries.
The Sharing Table hours are every Thursday from 2-6 pm at 32 Edwards Street, Patchogue, NY 11772. Questions; please call 631-510-5903 or write to email@example.com
