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 Times, Wall Street Journal, Good Morning America, USA Today, and the Huffington Post.
