John and Lyzbeth

Julio and Lyzbeth have been coming to the soup kitchen for seven years. Julio, who once worked as an assistant clerk for twenty two years on Wall Street,  still struggles with unemployment. The meals provided by Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen help supplement his limited income, which all goes to paying bills.  A native New Yorker, he lives in Harlem with his partner Lyzbeth who was born in Venezuala. She moved here in 1998 and relies on her native Spanish language for most of her communication. Julio is happy to translate her description of Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen: “Excellent. Everyone is courteous and devine.”

While she works “on and off”, she is limited to work environments which are predominantly Spanish Speaking.

Julio says,”It’s a spiritual place. I find peace here when I see all the people.”
