Port Jefferson AHEPA Delivers Greek Food to the Homeless

PORT JEFFERSON, NY – AHEPA Chapter 319 of Port Jefferson prepared and delivered approximately 40 meals to Pax Christi Hospitality Center on December 31, providing the homeless there with a delicious New Year’s Eve dinner.

The AHEPA Meals for Those in Need effort was spearheaded by Chapter 319 brothers with assistance from Gus Xikis, a church parishioner. They prepared and delivered marinated oven-roasted pork loin served with gravy, spanakopita, tyropita, Greek salad, cooked mixed vegetables, roasted potatoes, rice pilaf, soda, and pita bread.

It was such a success that Chapter 319 is now planning to formalize it into a recurring chapter event.
