The Christian Kitchen is a ministry of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, dedicated to fulfilling Matthew 25 and is made up of volunteers who donate clothing, items of need, and their time to make sandwiches, soup, desserts, refreshments and then distribute the fruit of their labors to men and women who are poor and/or live on the streets of Long Island and Manhattan.
The ministry is more than feeding people, it’s about sharing the Light of Christ with those who have barely anything. The goal is not just to feed but to create relationships with the homeless. We want to bring light into a world that can be very dark at times. We eat together, pray together, and cry together. We try to meet not just physical, but spiritual needs. We try to provide resources to help with medical, drug, family, or housing issues. It is a very blessed ministry and its volunteers are critical to its success.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat…”
Come and volunteer on a soup run!
We feed the hungry in Manhattan on most Wednesday nights. During Great Lent, the schedule changes to Tuesday evenings. Other opportunities for serving are also available. Just check the calendar before coming or call the rectory at 516-483-3649.
