Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Our mission is simple: to feed the hungry and the homeless in a warm and welcoming environment every Saturday afternoon.
St. Joe’s Soup Kitchen is an independent, all-volunteer organization that serves 400-500 meals every Saturday to New York City’s homeless and hungry. We have been in operation for 40 years, relying on volunteers, local businesses, and the generosity of the community to help us continue our mission of providing hot, nutritious meals to those in need.
Not all of our guests are homeless. Some of our guests are individuals who are unable to hold a job due to mental illness, some of them are seniors from the community, while others are minimum-wage workers whose pay doesn’t cover both food and lodging in the city. Others are temporarily out of work and come to us to tide them over.
St. Joseph's Soup Kitchen serves our guest through our weekly meal program, our used clothing distribution center, and our partnership with Project Renewal to provide health & substansce abuse services.
