HUC-JIR Soup Kitchen


For more than 20 years, the student-run HUC-JIR Soup Kitchen at the New York campus has guaranteed a weekly meal for its homeless and hungry neighbors in the Washington Square area.

The Soup Kitchen provides a nutritious meal to approximately 100 guests every week. Volunteers from around the New York area — secondary school pupils, college students and adults — help prepare and serve the meals. The Soup Kitchen also offers its guests free legal counseling by NYU Law School students, free seasonal second-hand clothing, shoes and portable hygiene supplies.
