Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen


The Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen in New York City is known nationally and internationally for its ambitious ministry to the hungry. Since 1982 it has served well over 1,000 meals a day to those in need and continues to do so with the help of countless dedicated volunteers and friends. Less well known is its Writers’ Workshop, founded in 1993 by New Yorker journalist Ian Frazier, to open a creative forum for soup kitchen guests. Through the Workshop, our guests are encouraged to create, think and reflect, while showcasing their considerable literary talents through prose, poetry and memoirs. This blog showcases the impressive body of work – alternately touching, funny, and heartbreaking – from our Writers’ Workshop contributors both past and present. Some of these selections come from the 2004 anthology Food for the Soul: Selections from the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen Writers’ Workshop, and some from the present day, with material and news from our current Workshop which takes place each Spring. We invite you to read, enjoy and share.
