Neighbors Together is a grassroots nonprofit committed to ending hunger and poverty in Ocean Hill, our Brooklyn, New York, neighborhood. Our mission is deeply grounded in our belief in the dignity and potential of each person. Since 1982 we have been fighting hunger on three levels:
• Our daily soup kitchen alleviates the immediate crisis by providing hot, nutritious lunch and dinner to more than 300 people a day;
• Our range of social services address the struggles which go hand-in-hand with hunger: unemployment, lack of education, homelessness, addiction, inadequate health care;
• Our neighborhood-directed community action program strives to transform social structures that result in poverty and hunger.
True to our name, we collaborate with many partners in a crucial endeavor: to ensure that all members of our community have the resources to feed themselves and their families.
