I have been volunteering here for 14 years and think this is a very helpful place to go when you need a hot meal Monday-Friday from 10:30am-12:30pm.

Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen:

Why we are here:

Hunger is an ever-present and growing problem in New York City. By volunteering at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen, you can do one important thing-directly help to feed those most in need. Once we’ve made a connection though a meal, we are able to offer other forms of support and assistance to those guests who are interested.

Who we help:

Thousands of people come through the doors of Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen every week for a tasty, nutritious meal that will see them through the day. Many guests are homeless and the time they spend here gives them a respite from life on the street, a place to relax, where they feel safe and comfortable and are part of a community.

More than a meal:

Some guests are in a transitional situation and spend time with our social service advisors to help them take the first steps toward finding a permanent place to live or a way back into the workforce. Others come on their lunch break, eating quickly, so they can back to work. All have different needs and different situations. Donations of clothing, toiletries, canes, backpacks and metro cards are greatly appreciated. Please contact our Social Services Department at social_services@holyapostlesnyc@org or call 646-998-6119.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer as a group, please email us at hask_inquiry@holyapostlesnyc.org or call 646-998-6118.

History of Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen:

Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen served its first meal to 35 guests in October 1982. Within a few months, the line grew to more than 300. Since that first meal, the Soup Kitchen has opened its doors every Monday-Friday, without fail, to feed our hungry guests. More than five million men, women and children have been served.

In 1990, the Holy Apostles Church suffered a devastating fire; yet the Soup Kitchen did not miss a day of service. In 1994, the Soup Kitchen moved its dining facilities into the newly restored nave, which  comfortably seats 120 guests at a time. Each day, the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen serves over 1000 meals to hungry New Yorkers.

Holy Apostles also offers social services which include referrals for clothing, shelter, food pantries as well as medical services, employment, drug/alcohol rehabilitation and HIV/AIDS services. Our clergy also provide Pastoral Care, a ministry that is open to persons of all faiths, where we will listen, provide non-financial support, encouragement and friendship. Our goal is to provide for our guests immediate need-hunger-and then to connect them to the services and supports to get them back on their feet.

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" (IUniverse.com 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
