Putting our Core Values to Work

Trinity also advocates for the well-being of everyone by challenging unjust systems that oppress and harm the most vulnerable in our society. Civic engagement is a key component to creating a just society, and Trinity regularly participates in and hosts advocacy campaigns, such as Faith Leaders for Just Reentry, a campaign with a three-pronged strategy for building a supportive system for those released from Rikers Island.

Since 2009, Trinity’s Outreach team has served New Yorkers free, nutritional meals through its grab-and-go Brown Bag Lunch program. Before the pandemic, the program was offered midday at St. Paul’s Chapel, seven days a week. Today it’s offered throughout the day, seven days a week, to drop-in guests at Trinity Church. Trinity also donates Compassion Market groceries to our partner, the Community First Food Pantry.

Trinity’s Outreach team assists guests further by connecting them to city resources such as housing, legal aid, and mental health services, and works with them to enroll in benefits such as SNAP. Resource hours are virtual for now and available by appointment.

Volunteering at Trinity is another way we serve our community. When social distance protocols are lifted, we will once again invite volunteers to support our Outreach programs in person, which include packing and serving meals and a food pantry. Currently, at-home volunteers are making masks for COVID Courage, sharing random acts of kindness, and writing notes of support to our Brown Bag guests.
