Local 600 Member Gareth Manwaring and his wife converted their coffee shop, Roots Cafe, into a food pantry/soup kitchen in Brooklyn, New York.
“Since my job as the B 1st AC on The Blacklist has ended due to the virus, my wife and I have been focusing on helping our neighborhood and our great city,” says Manwaring. “We transformed our coffee shop into a food pantry/soup kitchen/coffee shop!”
Manwaring says in this time of crisis, they will be providing free Vegan Chili and Grilled Cheese as well as pantry items and large doses of hope.
“We would love it if our union members would join in this with us,” he added.
If you would like to support Gareth, he encourages members to please stop by and grab a bag of your favorite Forty Weight Coffee, a Drink, a meal, or drop off some canned/dried goods or donate to their Gofundme.
