The nonprofit reached that substantial number as 2021 ended, and it acknowledges the generosity of so many neighbors. "Your kindness will increase access to food, provide connections to other agencies, and enable us to maintain our operations under one roof for the first time in 30 years," a current newsletter says, referring to the new headquarters at 117 Broadway.

"If the pandemic has shown us anything, it’s that we all need one another," the newsletter says.

In May 2019, EATS moved the market to St. John’s Church, while 117 Broadway was under construction. The church also rearranged its schedule to accommodate operations. Almost three years later, the nonprofit is still there, grateful to the St. John’s congregation for the sacrifices they’ve made. 

Meanmwhile, Beats for EATS has been moved to this fall as the group celebrates the opening of its new building. Stay tuned for more information.
