Fast-A-Thon to benefit local soup kitchen

Nov6CN_CommActiv_FastWeekdays from 10:30am-12:30pm, New York’s largest soup kitchen takes the words of that anonymous poet to heart — by providing meals to some of the one-in-six city residents who spend every day of the year without having their basic nutritional needs met. Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen’s Second Annual Fast-a-Thon is your way to help keep their doors open through Thanksgiving and beyond. By signing up, you commit to eating only one meal on Thursday, Nov. 21 — the way most of our their guests do every day. Friends and family can sponsor your fast, or you can donate the money you would have spent on food that day. Either way, you’ll be raising vital funds for the Soup Kitchen’s mission. You can also join as a team and work with family, friends or colleagues towards a shared fundraising goal.

Thank God for dirty dishes
They have a tale to tell.
While others may go hungry,
We’re eating very well.

The soup kitchen is located at Holy Apostles Church (296 Ninth Ave., at 28th St.). Sign up for the Fast-a-Thon at fastathon.causevox.com, or call 212-924-0167. You can make a direct donation, at holyapostlessoupkitchen.org/How-Can-I-Help/donate-now.html.
