St. John's Bread and Life

Due to the global pandemic, and based on the directives of the University's Return to Campus Task Force released in the University’s updated plan for our campus reopening, “Preparing for the Fall Semester, Campus Ministry Vincentian service programs on campus are moving to "virtual formats," Please check back regularly for updated opportunities and efforts that will be offered.


St. John’s Bread and Life was founded in 1982. As a ministry of the Daughters of Charity and the Vincentian Fathers at St. John the Baptist Parish, it soon expanded beyond the parish boundaries and grew to be a freestanding not-for-profit corporation.

Today, Bread and Life serves over 1,000 meals daily to hungry New Yorkers and offers a variety of  services to its clients.

“Fridays in the Soup Kitchen” offers students and employees a remarkable opportunity to enhance the lives of underserved New Yorkers while enriching their own through Vincentian Service.

Round-trip transportation is provided. Interested employees are strongly suggested to get approval from their direct supervisors in order to perform service during the work day.
