Our mission is to feed the hungry, comfort the afflicted, seek justice for the homeless, and provide a sense of hope and opportunity to those in need.


Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen has been a symbol of hope and compassion in the Chelsea section of Manhattan since 1982. Housed in the landmark Church of the Holy Apostles, the Soup Kitchen serves over 1,000 hot nutritious meals on average each and every weekday, including holidays. Anyone who comes to our door is welcome – without question or qualification.



While Holy Apostles recognizes the vital importance of providing basic nourishment to those who are hungry -- much more is needed. Together with the solidarity and commitment of our staff and volunteers, Holy Apostles strives to be a gateway to positive change in the lives of the people it serves and seeks to enlarge our guests’ capacity for self-help and reconnect them to the broader community. Through our programs and in our commitment to combating hunger and homelessness, we provide the support and respect guests need to become self-sufficient and regain hope for the future. Holy Apostles is a place of humanity, compassion, and dignity.
