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.
Ascension Outreach recently partnered with Resistance Cinema to present free documentary films monthly (usually the first Tuesday each month at 7pm) on current topics.
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 can line up on the sidewalk on the north side of 11th Street to receive bags of non-perishable food.
Films are shown at 7pm in the Church of the Ascension Parish House at 12 West 11th Street.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING, a new film (2015) about capitalism vs. climate will be shown on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at 7pm at the Church of the Ascension Parish House, 12 West 11th Street. Based on Naomi Klein’s book of the same name, it explores whether the climate crisis can be addressed in the current era of reckless consumption and market fundamentalism. The guest speaker at this film presentation will be Ken Gale, Host and Producer of WBAI’s Ecologic. Mr. Gale is also a founding member of New York City’s Safe Energy Campaign. The post-film Q&A will be very enlightening!
Watch here for for more films upcoming in 2016
The tutoring program meets on Mondays after school from September to May in the Parish Hall. Tutors work with grade school students as one-to-one mentors and the group creates a project together at the end of the year.
