Weekdays from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., New York City’s largest soup kitchen provides about 1,000 meals to some of the one-in-six city residents who spend every day of the year without having their basic nutritional needs met. Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen’s Annual Fast-A-Thon asks you to eat only one meal on Thurs., Nov. 17, just as their guests do every day. Friends, family, and colleagues will sponsor your fast, or you can donate the amount you would have spent on food that day.

The Right Rev. Andrew R. St. John (the kitchen’s Interim Executive Director) says, “By coming together as a community to fast and raise much-needed funds for the soup kitchen we are also reminded that our guests’ hunger is real, is urgent, and requires our attention and care.” Funds help ensure Holy Apostles (296 Ninth Ave. at W. 28th St.) can continue meet the needs of anyone who passes through their doors.
