In this truly heartwarming story by BKIndependentTV, Bay Ridge Cares cooks nourishing meals for residents of areas hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.
The video shows how with their volunteer-staffed kitchen at St. Mary’s Antiochian Orthodox Church [81st Street and Ridge Blvd], Bay Ridge Cares provides hot meals and desserts for the Occupy Sandy supply network – which also includes a larger kitchen at St. John’s Episcopal Church [9818 Fort Hamilton Pkwy].
City Councilman Vincent Gentile’s Communications Director and Bay Ridge Cares co-creator Justin Brannan makes an appearance to discuss how he, local chef Allison Robicelli, Karen Tadross, and Father Michael Ellias collaborated to make the kitchen a reality.
According to Tadross, the Bay Ridge Cares kitchen at St. Mary’s – which began operations in mid November and prepares 800 meals a day six days a week, will be helping victims of Hurricane Sandy until at least December 15.
