Farm to Tray

A sustainable food & wine benefit for Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen

Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen is the largest emergency food program in New York state, serving more than 1,000 meals each weekday to hungry and homeless New Yorkers.

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 Menus that mirror our commitment to nutrition and sustainability in every meal that we serve.

The idea for the campaign is firmly rooted in our commitment to food sustainability: using fresh, locally grown produce, minimizing food waste, planning nutritionally balanced meals, providing a variety of tastes and textures, and perhaps most important of all, presenting a vibrant and delicious meal for our guests.

Since its inception in 2013, Farm to Tray has raised nearly $2,000,000 in cash and in-kind donations and introduced 100 new partnerships to Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen. Thanks to event supporters,  dedicated volunteers, culinary figures, and corporate partners who lend their time, talent and resources to raise much needed funds we’re able to feed hungry New Yorkers and provide a sense of hope and opportunity every weekday as we have since 1982.

Our annual benefit attracts 400 corporate and community supporters, and attendees have included longtime soup kitchen friends such as actress and activist Susan Sarandon and award-winning journalist Ian Frazier. Like the soup kitchen guests who eat here every weekday, guests at Farm to Tray will dine in the illustrious Church of the Holy Apostles, a space that The New York Times journalist and soup kitchen supporter Anna Quindlen dubbed ‘the most majestic dining room in New York City.’  The soup kitchen and its esteemed Farm to Tray campaign have been featured in a variety of media outlets, including The NY TimesWall Street Journal, Good Morning America, USA Today, and the Huffington Post.

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.
