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.

Registration/ Education workshops, help with Mom’s group, talk with
