Boston City Councilor At-Large Michael Flaherty Hosts Community Cookout in Conjunction with the East Boston Community Soup Kitchen
BOSTON, MA - Today, Boston City Councilor Michael Flaherty hosted a community cookout at the Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in East Boston, alongside the East Boston Community Soup Kitchen, which was conducting its weekly food distribution operation concurrently. The Councilor was on-site grilling hot dogs for those in attendance. The BPD Ice Cream Truck was also present handing out ice cream sandwiches.
“It was great to get out in the neighborhood today, to accentuate the work the Sandra and her team at the East Boston Community Soup Kitchen have been doing throughout the pandemic, and bring some joy and levity to all those who could attend this afternoon,” said Councilor Flaherty. “I was lucky enough to volunteer with the Soup Kitchen earlier this year, and I am honored to continue to support them.”
The East Boston Community Soup Kitchen distributes grocery bags full of kitchen staples and high quality, healthy food every Tuesday. They are run by founder Sandra Nijjar, along with a team of dedicated volunteers. You can learn more about the Soup Kitchen and how to support there work at www.ebkitchen.org
“Having Councilor Flaherty here today to help out was a great experience,” said Sandra Nijjar. “Having the grill going with hot dogs, the ice cream, and the music brought smiles to the faces of our patrons today.”
