Pickups - Thursdays

Thursdays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m

The pickup point is at tables and/or tent in the parking lot at the rear of the Christ Church Parish Hall on Fillmore Street.

Christ Church New Brighton is located at 76 Franklin Avenue, on the corner of Franklin Ave. and Fillmore St., one block south of Richmond Terrace. Unless you are working, please do not come early, there is much work to be done by 5:30 to prepare for the group.

  • If you are going to be late (after 7:15), please CALL the site coordinator and make arrangements with you for your share. Site coordinators will also have a list of everyone's phone numbers, so they may call you if they don't hear from you. The site closes promptly at 7:30 p.m. If you miss the pickup your food and you have not contacted the site coordinator, your food will be donated to soup kitchen.
  • If you get lost, you call the site coordinator for the week (find this in your weekly email) or you can call the church office at 718-727-6100, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Before the Pickup

Each week you will receive an e-mail with the update from Farmer John letting you know what to expect in the share and the site coordinator's phone number. You may have a relative or neighbor pick up for you. Please let them know the procedures.

Those who are splitting shares, please work out among yourselves how you will be dividing your share.

Please do not come early as the site workers need the time between 4:45 and 5:30pm to weigh items and get the pickup set up. In past years, there has been a line at 5:30 to pick up. This is a time you can meet other SICSA members. Please be patient.
