Every Thursday morning Brenda prepares food for 40 to 50 homeless humans from all over Brooklyn. She’s been running this ministry through the Grace Chapel Church in Woodstock for over 8 years. At noon the doors are opened and anyone is welcome to attend the short service in our church building, where after everybody in attendance sits down for a meal together.
