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 has partnered with Resistance Cinema to present free documentary films each month 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 and the first 200 people in line receive bags of non-perishable food.
The next film will be shown in the Church of the Ascension, the entrance on Fifth Avenue & 10th Street will be open from 7:00pm and the screening begins at 7:30pm. day of each month. On October 24, 2017 we present The Lost Village, a great indie film which talks about the forces decimating Greenwich Village. It offers a razor-sharp investigation into the cannibalistic nature of capitalism in this country – very timely indeed! The filmmaker Roger Paradiso will be on hand to guide our post-screening discussion.
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.
