Saint Mary Episcopal Church Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry

Categories: Education

St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen is an outreach program. Each Saturday afternoon, teams of volunteers prepare lunch bags (including hot soup in the winter), which they take to people living on the streets, in cars and in parks in Harlem. Volunteers become acquainted with homeless neighbors and make them aware of resources and services in the area. The Food Pantry is open Mondays from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. and is operated by volunteers from the church and community. They serve an average of 50-60 families and individuals per day, people of all ethnicities and ages, about one-fourth children and one-fourth elderly. Each pantry bag has enough food for three days, and in the local growing season includes fresh produce from an upstate farm through our participation in Community Supported Agriculture.
