Our Church Choir and other members came to New York to perform at Carnegie Hall in June 2017. 10 of us who were not performing that day volunteered to help feed at the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen. We were all given different duties and it was a great experience and a blessing to us to see the hungry and homeless eating a good meal and enjoying their time there. Serving is what Christ has called us all to and we thank the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen for giving us the opportunity to do so.
May the Lord bless you and always provide as you continue to serve Him there.
In Christ's Love,

It was a great experience for us. Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen was very organized and made the work enjoyable. It's so nice to be a part of something that helps others in so many ways. It made me realize, more so, how I would like to do more healing and giving work in the future. Thanks for having us and being so hospitable!
I volunteered at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen for the first time. Everybody was very friendly and positive. People really appreciated food and volunteers help. It was such a great experience. I definitely will be back.
There is no greater non profit than Holy Apostle. They have been walking the walk for decades. It serves its community not only with food for the body, but with food for the soul as well. They offer all kinds of services for their guests; from writing workshops to toiletries to health sevices, and so much more. Besides which they make it super easy to volunteer, with an interactive online sign up. I am always so honored and proud to be able to say I am part of this organization.
A fantastic and deserving non profit. Thoughtful to both volunteers and guests alike. It is an honor to be able to volunteer there. They make it so easy to be part of their organization, with easy on the spot sign up. I appreciate the care they give to providing their guests, not just food but healthy food. They run many programs to provide food for the body and soul. Proud to be part of this dedicated group.

Today was my first time at a soup kitchen and I found HASK to be a very friendly and organized program. Everything from introduction to new volunteers, assigning tasks, and the service itself was done in a very neat and orderly fashion. The staff was extremely kind in acknowledging all the volunteers and the guests. My time there felt very rewarding and I definitely look forward to going back there!
We took out youth group for their first mission trip to help out at the soup kitchen of HASK. the staff there was encouraging and helpful, running a very well organized program. Everyone was very polite and the experience left both the youth and the chaperones that accompanied them desiring to help more. There are already plan to come back again in the near future as a result of the positive experience at HASK.
Great experience at HASK this week. I've been bringing my work teammates to HASK for over 5 years and have come with three different companies. HASK does a great job - very well organized and clear roles for the volunteers - very appreciative of their efforts. This year we served ~800 meals and got to work with some great regular volunteers. The whole operation is classy & well run. I hope our experience at HASK sparks some of my employees to continue volunteering and giving back in their communities.
For eight years I have brought a group of ninth graders from several high schools in Manhattan to a soup kitchen or food pantry during the month of April to volunteer their services. Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen has been the best experience thus far. The staff were so friendly and helpful when we arrived. Throughout the late morning and early afternoon, the guests were welcomed warmly by the staff and volunteers. From the serving line to the bussing of trays, every aspect of this "soup kitchen" was managed professionally. A professional staff in a dining hall at a college could not have done a better job. Throughout the day, the staff, the longstanding volunteers, and the guests all engaged us in friendly conversations. I haven't heard "God bless you" as many times in a decade as I heard in four hours at Holy Apostles. On our way back to school, all of the students echoed my feelings about this experience. If you want to help an organization that knows what it is doing and really cares about the people it serves, Holy Apostles should be high on your list for volunteering and monetary assistance.
I went with my advisory to serve and it was an enriching experience for all! We were warmly welcomed and all activities were well coordinated. There was not a wasted second. All the time was spent meaningfully supporting the wonderful servants at Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen serve more effectively. We would all go again!
Thanks for finding a place for our hands :)
