Farm to Tray 2016
Our Farm to Tray event on May 19th was a joyful celebration where we raised nearly $500,000 in cash and in-kind support, and we are grateful to our supporters for making it one of the most successful fundraisers at the Soup Kitchen.
Event attendees enjoyed the delicious food prepared by some of NYC’s most talented chefs! Thanks to their gift of time and talent the funds raised go directly to thousands of well-balanced meals a day we serve every week.
Special thanks to our our honorees Ian Frazier and Deacon Bob for their gifts of time and talent throughout many years of dedication to Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen.
It was the generous collaboration of the dozens of corporate, event, beverage, food and silent auction sponsors and host committee members that showed once again what a dynamic community of friends our soup kitchen is fortunate to have. It’s a community built on the foundation of hard working volunteers, whom we are grateful to as well. We are truly heartened to know that New York’s most vulnerable will continue to be held in compassion by so many supporters like you.
Please enjoy memories of the 2016 Farm to Tray in this Facebook photo album and the video that was shown at the event.
