Our January initiative exceeded our expectations and many asked to participate again. In addition, Hope Soup kitchen asked if we would be willing to cook a meal once per month! Therefore, we are excited to announce Cooking for Hope is now a monthly initiative!

This joint effort between SOJAC and Sisterhood encourages you to cook a meal for our neighbors at Hope Soup Kitchen. Cook up a meal, package up the meals, and donate them to HOPE Soup Kitchen, to feed 120 deserving and hungry people.

A few things to know—

  • Meals should feed 10 people
  • Meals can include an entree, vegetable, and dessert (but not required)
  • Some suggestions are:  lasagna, mac and cheese, chili, chicken, baked ziti.
  • Containers are available, if needed!

PLEASE NOTE, AS INFORMATION AS CHANGED: This month, drop off will be Thursday, October 28, at Edeet Soroker’s home, located at  35  Forest Park Ave between 9:00 and 11:00am when we will then deliver the food to Hope on everyone’s behalf. PLEASE BRING FOOD TO THE PATIO DOOR AT THE END OF THE DRIVEWAY (GROUND FLOOR) AND RING THE DOORBELL THERE. If you need to reach Edeet, her phone number is 914-400-8577.

Please let us know if you are participating ahead of time! Simply email

Questions can also be directed to Sondra at or 914-980-8853.


About Hope Soup Kitchen

With the assistance and support of a host of volunteers, HOPE opened the doors of its first Soup Kitchen in 1984. Since its early days, HOPE has grown to become the largest emergency Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen in the region. Although HOPE Community Services was founded to respond to hunger in the community, it quickly became apparent that food was not the only thing our clients were lacking. Clothing, language skills, emotional support, immigration services, and other daily necessities were also needed. HOPE Community Services expanded its services to meet the needs of its diverse client population. To learn more, visit
