Nature and Purpose of Agency
There is shortage of food pantries in the South Ozone Park area.
Some residents come as far as Flushing to Pastor Doris food pantry
because there are either no food pantries in the area or they do
not have enough food to give out to the general public. The Holy
Ghost Upper Room Filling Station is a community church. We believe
in doing what we can to make our community a safe and pleasant
place in which to work, live and worship.
