A day in the life of a volunteer
Here's What's Happening at Mercy Soup Kitchen...
The Mercy Soup Kitchen of Wyandanch addresses the issue of hunger and need in the community by providing hot, nourishing meals in a dignified, comfortable and respectful manner to those who seek our help.
We are a volunteer, not-for-profit, non-sectarian, community-based organization who believes that all human beings are interdependent and that society heals itself by caring for the least of its brethren.
The Mercy Soup Kitchen operates a single soup kitchen in Wyandanch, Long Island, NY, serving over 26,000 free, hot noontime meals per year and an equal amount of take home meals to the homeless, disabled, elderly, children, and poor people of the community. No questions are asked of our guests. All who come to us are served with dignity and respect.
Almost all the food served is donated by local 7 – Elevens, bakeries, restaurants, markets, and community groups, or obtained through annual grants from L. I. Cares and Island Harvest. Our largest expense is rent, which is paid to the non-affiliated church in whose basement we are located.
