Transferring of duties at SJSK
SJSK volunteers Maria and Julia were bonding while taking inventory in one of our food and supplies closets (the “brown closet” due to lighting). Julia has done a fantastic job throughout the years in ordering the food and supplies for SJSK on a weekly basis. Pictured here, she was training Maria (from cooking crew known as Team MarJan), who is now placing the order for food and supplies at SJSK, effective immediately.
Julia will still be involved with SJSK in dealing with food grant process while Maria will focus on the weekly food & supplies ordering aspect.  
Thank you ladies and good luck.

451 meals served on April 20, 2013 at St. Joseph’s Soup Kitchen in Greenwich VillageTeam MarJan were this week’s cooks and along with an incredible team of fellow volunteers, a tasty Chicken Tetrazzini was prepared. Creamy, hearty, and popular with guests is how the meal turned out. Salad, bread, fruit cup, coffee and lemonade rounded out the remainder of the day’s offerings.
A spicy vegetarian option was also available for guests, upon request.

An example of how awesome our volunteers are. This week at SJSK, there were kids on the soup kitchen line and they asked if there were any sweets or dessert available. Unfortunately, there weren’t. However, Rudy, the volunteer who was scooping the day’s entree overheard the request and bolted out to the nearest store to purchase chocolate chip cookies and snack size candy bars. The kids were happy to receive the treats and the remaining sweets were offered to other soup kitchen guests. God bless you Rudy for your thoughtfulness and compassion. We heart our volunteers!

Watch as SJSK volunteers Maria, Ben & Kelly make croutons using bread generously donated by local Greenwich Village restaurants.

We love our volunteers—open to anyone—just stop by on any Saturday morning at 10am or 1pm. There’s plenty to do and wonderful people to meet. Oh, and it’s for a good cause too!
