1.4 million New Yorkers of all ages go hungry each day. For many of our guests, the meal they have at the soup kitchen is the only one they eat. 

Held one week before Thanksgiving,  our annual Fast-A-Thon is a bold and effective way to make a difference in the lives of hungry New Yorkers. By eating only one meal on November 16th, like many of our guests do every day, our Fast-A-Thoners raised awareness about chronic hunger and raised money to help us continue to serve meals every weekday, including our traditional Thanksgiving meal. By supporting Fast-A-Thon 2017 through Giving Tuesday, November 28th, you can help us toward our funding goal of $95,500.

 The success of our Fast-A-Thon depends on the grassroots efforts of our "Fast-A-Thoners" and their friends and family.  To date, we have seen an unprecedented number of participants join in on this annual event that brings our wider community together in conversation about the needs of hungry and homeless New Yorkers. 

To encourage friendly competition, we are rewarding our top 3 non-corporate fundraisers with generous gifts. For raising the most funds, one Fast-A-Thoner will receive a complimentary ticket to our May Farm to Tray event. Our second place Fast-A-Thoner will be awarded one free ad in the Farm to Tray journal. And she or he in 3rd place will be presented with their very own Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen hat and apron.

We are also extending an opportunity to all of our Fast-A-Thoners to recognize their sacrifice and hard work on a meaningful date they would like to honor throughout the year, by assigning their funds raised to the cost of meals for that day. 

On behalf of all our guests, thank you for your generous support of this year's Fast-A-Thon!
