Farm to Tray
A sustainable food & wine benefit for Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen
Farm to Tray is a celebration of food and community at the soup kitchen, inviting well-respected culinary figures from across the City to create sustainable, nutritious menus that mirror our vision for nourishing New Yorkers struggling with poverty, hunger, and homelessness.
On May 14, 2020, Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen will host its 8th Annual Farm to Tray, a culmination of our year-round campaign to bring attention and resources to the issues of hunger, sustainability, and food waste, while also strengthening our ability to improve the lives of our fellow New Yorkers through meal outreach and social service programs.
Since 2013, Farm to Tray has raised nearly $2.3 million in cash and in-kind support and introduced over 100 new partnerships to Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen. The success of Farm to Tray can be attributed to the soup kitchen’s core group of dedicated volunteers, culinary figures, and corporate partners who lend their time, talent, and resources to raise much needed funds to feed and lift up hungry New Yorkers.
We have enjoyed the diverse and generous sponsorship support from such companies as dcc, Google, Jamestown, Lindenmyr Munroe, and Whole Foods Market. The soup kitchen and its esteemed Farm to Tray campaign have been featured in a variety of media outlets, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Good Morning America, BronxNet, USA Today, and the Huffington Post. Benefit attendees have included longtime soup kitchen supporter Susan Sarandon, award-winning journalist Ian Frazier, and the illustrious James Beard Foundation.

On May 17th our sixth annual Farm to Tray event took place and raised over $400,000 in cash and in-kind donations to benefit Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen! A celebration of food and community at the soup kitchen, the event “challenges” well-respected culinary figures from across New York City to produce a Sustainable Menu for this lively cocktail benefit.
Attendees experienced a bounty of food tastings featuring live music and a silent auction in the illustrious Church of the Holy Apostles, where nearly 300,000 meals are served annually to hungry New Yorkers.
Farm to Tray 2017
Our Farm to Tray event on May 18th was a joyful celebration where we raised over $400,000 in cash and in-kind support – a 40% increase in total cash raised from last year! We are grateful to our supporters for making it the most successful fundraisers in the Soup Kitchen’s 35-year history.
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 went directly to thousands of well-balanced meals a day we serve every week.
Special thanks to our Farm to Tray Founding Partners and Honorees Patrick Athy, Timothy Higdon and Whole Foods Market 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, culinary, food and beverage, and silent auction sponsors and Host and Media 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.
