THIS WINTER WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT NOW, MORE THAN EVER.
The St. Francis Breadline is continuing to impact the lives of so many in need during these unprecedented times. All the friars and our volunteers are taking the proper precautions to remain safe while still providing a small bag of food for those who come to us in need.

HELP US REACH OUR $100,000 GOAL

As the days grow brisk in New York City, the St. Francis Breadline is preparing hundreds of meals to feed the hungry and homeless left on the streets in this treacherous weekend cold. On many nights, these people sleep on the steps and sidewalks of the church and friary. Small cardboard boxes with just enough room for a single person’s body, line the sidewalks as makeshift bedrooms.

The St. Francis Breadline continues to operate every morning at 7:00 am despite the pandemic. We are feeding over 250 people on a daily basis outside of our church in Midtown Manhattan. Any gift you can make during this pandemic will make a huge difference as we continue to serve the hundreds of homeless women and men who journey down the sidewalk to receive a simple meal. Many others are former service workers and people who have lost their jobs due to the far-reaching effects of the virus.

DONATE

Remember that your kindness and your gift can help the St. Francis Breadline provide a sandwich, a piece of cake and a warm drink to women, men and families that wait on line in the winter cold to receive it.

$5 Give A Meal To Heal 

What if your life depended on a diet of sliced cheese, deli meat and white bread? For many people who walk our breadline, that is the reality. For just $5.00 you can give a meal and provide a man or woman in need with what might be their only food of the day.

$45 Give A Bag of Groceries

Imagine not having access to fresh food. For many people who walk our breadline, that is the reality. For just $45.00 you can give a meal and provide a man or woman in need with a bag of groceries.

$155 Give A Week of Meals

Help us continue the work we’ve been doing on the St. Francis Breadline for over 86 years: feeding the hungry and showing mercy to all we meet in the spirit of St. Francis. We would not be able to bring the light of Christ to so many without your care and financial support.

FRANCISCANS DELIVER

Franciscans Deliver is a ministry of service to the poor, elderly, shut-ins, and anyone who has difficulty accessing services in our neighborhood. Every week our members choose which grocery items they want, and then our volunteers pack and deliver their order to their front door. We believe that client choice—members choosing the items they want—enhances a person’s dignity while it addresses individual preferences for food. Our food is top-quality and we ensure that our members are offered meats, cereals, fresh produce, eggs, milk, coffee, and dessert every week. But the most important thing this great team of volunteers delivers is the joyful spirit of St. Francis. 

DONATE

The St. Francis Breadline is about making life a little less painful for many hungry people who have fallen through the cracks. It is about taking the Gospel mandate to heart. “Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me,” Jesus told us. The Breadline, which has been feeding the hungry since 1930 and is supported solely by donations from people of generous heart and spirit, gives real meaning to that message every morning.

Please help us to continue bringing some comfort and warmth to those whose home is a cold sidewalk and a hard concrete bed. Your gift can help us make the simplest gesture – a warm drink on a freezing day – seems like the greatest gift anyone can give.
