Group Volunteering

Volunteering for Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen is a great way to learn about homelessness and hunger in New York City, give back to the community and have an enriching experience as a team. As the largest soup kitchen in New York, we make it easy to organize your group volunteer efforts. We regularly host groups from schools, churches and other community groups. If you are a corporation, you can rest assured that you are in good hands as we host regular corporate groups from many organizations including Agera Energy, Google, KPMG, Metlife, NYSE, Wells Fargo and Marriot Hotels. Whatever your group, we make sure all volunteers will be put to work doing one of the many jobs that it takes to run the soup kitchen so your group members will leave knowing they really made a difference. After volunteering here as a group, many individuals continue to come back on their own because they enjoyed the experience so much. Through our Good Corporate Citizen Program, Nonprofit Partners in Service Program and Hunger, and Homeless and Charitable Giving Program for Students, groups go beyond volunteering their support for our guests. Please contact the Volunteer Department at (212) 924-0167 or rjoyce@holyapostlesnyc.org for more information and to coordinate a date.

Each weekday, rain or snow, an average 1,000 hungry and homeless New Yorkers receive a freshly cooked meal at the city’s largest soup kitchen. Between 50 and 60 volunteers gather for a day of service, from 9:30am to 1:00pm, at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen. Our volunteers feed, provide social services and live music to food insecure adults and families who need your helping hand.
