BAYARD STREET COMMUNITY FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM
22A Joyce Kilmer Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
A lot is going on at Bayard Street Presbyterian Church – There are five other congregations sharing their space to spread the good News of Jesus Christ. They are blessed to be able to feed about 150 people in the New Brunswick community every month! This started with the Holy Spirit speaking to Bayard Street Presbyterian Church Pastor, Rev. Bodnar saying they should fulfill the need of hungry families and individuals in New Brunswick. That was two years ago with about 30 people attending, well fast-forward to 2013 and they have about 150 people attending the last Saturday of the month BAYARD STREET COMMUNITY FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM. Those volunteering for this feel it is truly is a blessing to be able to provide this service to the community under the auspices of the Presbyterian Church but bittersweet as it seems the demand for food and assistance grows every month. About 15 volunteers work passionately everyday of every month to help those in the community.

The vision for the Bethany House of Hospitality (BHOH) Community Garden became a reality through partnerships between the Urban Mission Cabinet Inc., The Crisis Ministry, and Isles. In addition, volunteer efforts from urban and suburban congregations, businesses, and a number of supporting organizations played a central role in the success of this garden project.
