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.

Pax Christi offers guests who are homeless a safe alternative to the streets. Pax Christi offers case management, drug and alcohol counseling, mental health counseling, links to benefits and resources in the community, as well as the basics of food and shelter. Over 50 active volunteers assist with cleaning, making beds, painting, serving meals and providing food and clothing for guests.
