Nature and Purpose of Agency
St. John’s Bread and Life exists to restore shattered hopes and human dignity. The heart of the program is a soup kitchen located in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn that serves breakfast and lunch to needy New Yorkers daily. We also reduce suffering and encourage independence by providing clothes, health and counseling services. We try to make our program an instrument of long range empowerment and community building as well as immediate service. We strive to heighten awareness of the public’s responsibility to address and prevent poverty. This is accomplished in an atmosphere of compassion and respect.
