Ascension Outreach, Inc. is a community service non-profit 501(c)(3), based in Greenwich Village, New York & member agency of Food Bank for New York City. We operate a food pantry and tutoring outreach program located at The Church of the Ascension.
Grocery bags of non-perishable food are distributed on the second and fourth Saturday each month from 8:30am to 9:00am from the Parish House door at 12 West 11th Street. Clients are welcome to line up on the sidewalk on the north side of 11th Street before checking in to receive food.

The tutoring program meets on Mondays after school from September to May in the Parish Hall. Tutors work with grade school students as mentors, working with them on a one-to-one ratio. The group usually create a project together at the end of the year. Watch here for information on how to participate in September, 2015.
