What We Do

"Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen is my home away from homelessness." - Elizabeth, soup kitchen guest.

View Elizabeth's Story

As New York’s largest emergency food program, Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen serves a hearty and nutritious meal to about 1,000 homeless and hungry New Yorkers like Elizabeth every day.

We recognize the hunger in our city beyond the need for food. At Holy Apostles we offer our guests refuge from the streets, a safe place they feel welcomed, connection to additional services and food for the soul as well as the body.

In 35 years we have never missed a serving day and we have never turned anyone away from our door.

Mission

Our mission is to feed the hungry, comfort the afflicted, seek justice for the homeless, and provide a sense of hope and opportunity to those in need.

In addition to our food program, our committed staff and volunteers work with guests to ensure they are receiving full benefits, connect them to additional supportive services, help with job applications and even reunite them with family members.

Our ultimate goal is to empower our guests to experience a more manageable and fulfilling way of life.
