From the Desk of the Executive Director
Congratulations. The cold weather has ended and Spring is finally here! To kick off the season, on May 30th, renowned writer and lecturer Caroline Myss will make her fifth benefit presentation on behalf of TASK at the Bart Luedeke Center at Rider University. We still have a few tickets available, if interested please Click here to purchase tickets.
In addition, TASK has published its blog titled, Stories of a Soup Kitchen. The blog is composed of stories from patrons who have used our services, as well as the staff and volunteers of TASK. Our supporters and Patrons offer a perspective on life that is often unheard by the rest of the world. The blog serves to give them a voice in the conversation. Please Note: The blog tells uncensored first person stories and may contain strong content.
Lastly, on April 26, TASK and the YMCA of Trenton collaborated for the first time to bring Healthy Kids Day to the city of Trenton. The event was a super success! More than 400 families came out for a fun-filled day of entertainment and healthy activities. Click here to view photos from the event.

Stories of a Soup Kitchen: A Father’s Story
Earlier this year, TASK launched a blog titled “Stories of a Soup Kitchen.” The blog is composed of stories from patrons who have used our services, as well as the staff and volunteers of TASK. TASK’s patrons offer a perspective on life that is often unheard by the rest of the world. This blog serves to give them a voice in the conversation.
Please see our most recent blog entry My Life as a Father, written by a student in our Adult Education Program. The writer shares his feelings of growing up fatherless and explains how that experience molded him to be the provider, teacher, and friend that he is to his children to this day.
Healthy Kids Day a Super Success
On Saturday April 26th, for the first time, the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) partnered with the YMCA of Trenton to host Healthy Kids Day.
