Go hungry for a day so someone else doesn’t have to…

Taking part in the Fast-a-thon means showing your support for New York’s hungry by walking in their shoes.  For many of our soup kitchen guests, the meal they eat here is the only one of the day. By signing up and taking part, on Thursday, November 19th, you’ll only eat one meal that day and experience what life is like for the 2 million New Yorkers who currently spend each day without enough food. 

How does it work?

  1. Click here to register and create a personalized fundraising page.
  2. Share your personalized fundraising page with your friends so they can sponsor you. We'll provide you with a toolkit to make fundraising as easy as copying and pasting!
  3. On November 19th, you’ll fast from 6AM until 11:59PM and eat only one meal. 
  4. The money you raise will be put to immediate use and ensure New Yorkers who lack the means can still enjoy the wonderful tastes of the Holidays with a caring community.

What do I eat?

For many of our soup kitchen guests, the meal they eat here is the only meal they eat that day. By taking part in the Fast-a-thon, you’ll only be eating one meal too. 

Normally, we'd invite you to the soup kitchen to enjoy your meal alongside our guests or other fasters. Since we can't do that this year, we'll send you an interactive menu and cooking demo from our own culinary team so you can make your own meal at home. You'll experience first-hand how the meals we provide at the soup kitchen are of the same quality and nutrition as what you'd serve your own loved ones.

Can't fast but still want to help? Please donate today! $5 = 5 meals!
