Results: The soup kitchen has never missed a serving day in thirty years, despite hurricanes, blizzards, transit shutdowns and terrorist attacks. On our very first day we served 34 meals - now we serve upwards of 1,200 every day. We have expanded our programs to respond to the changing needs of our guests, and today we offer counseling, referrals, healthcare and enrichment services, as well as a seasonal Writers' Workshop that showcases the creative abilities of our guests and volunteers. On average our counselors hold individual daily sessions with over 1,500 guests per month, providing them with vital assistance and advice: "I didn't know I could get retirement benefits. Caroline showed me that, and made the application for me. The money came through just as I was about to lose my apartment. If it wasn't for Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen, I'd be on the streets now." - Jose, former soup kitchen guest "I didn't want to go to a soup kitchen, but I had nowhere else to turn. It was nothing like I expected - everyone made me feel so welcome, like I was coming home. I had this feeling I hadn't had in a long time. I felt at peace. I knew we were going to make it no matter what. " - Susan, mother of five
