The MSK is the mobile extension of St John’s Bread & Life, reaching out to families and individuals who do not have easy access to food and other social services. Last year, when residents of the Red Hook housing projects found themselves without cooking gas, we altered our MSK route to deliver hot meals to those in need.

An MSK worker offers social service referrals and information to directly connect folks with assistance to housing, counseling, health, detoxification/rehabilitation programs, public benefits, tax preparation, job training, and immigration services.
