What Brooklyn nun Caroline Tweedy has done at St. John’s Bread & Life food pantry in four years is nothing short of a miracle.

Since she took over the Bedford-Stuyvesant organization in 2018, the pantry has tripled its service capacity to provide up to 250,000 meals a month to people in Brooklyn and Queens.

“We have never turned anyone away. Ever,” Sr. Tweedy told the Daily News. “As a Sister of Mercy, we are called to serve and be of service.”

Two of Tweedy’s coworkers nominated her for a Daily News Hometown Heroes award for transforming the Lexington Ave. spot from a local soup kitchen into one that prepared 3 million meals for 64,000 households in the last year.
