Community Soup Kitchen
Last updated on May 15, 2014


Community Soup Kitchen provides free meals to the needy. We and our partner sites offer breakfast and lunch six days a week in the downtown New Haven area.

Community Soup Kitchen is a non-profit agency that provides free, nutritious meals to anyone in need. The Soup Kitchen receives no city, state or federal money for our operation. We rely upon the community to support our mission. We have been in operation since 1977. We provided a total of 73,578 meals in 2013 through the hard work of our dining room staff and volunteers at 84 Broadway, our associates at the Saint Luke’s Lunch Program for Women and Children, our breakfast site partners, and the Yale summer bagged lunch program. This number represents a 7.5% increase over the number of meals we provided in 2012. We also act as a host site for the Hill Health Center who offers health services to our guests. We also act as a work site for a client of Chapel Haven.

Community Soup Kitchen 5 Overall Experience    Experience rating
I am more aware the need for volunteers.
 I have been volunteering with the Community Soup Kitchen serving breakfast for one Saturday a month (and any other Saturday needed) with my family and have found it to be more rewarding than I thought it would be. I wanted my daughter to experience helping those with less and perhaps learn not to take what she has in life for granted and I think I have learned as much as she has.

Community Soup Kitchen 5 Overall Experience    Experience rating
Welcoming, needed, efficient, well-organized, safe, in-and-out.
 My girlfriend and I volunteered during lunch (approx. 11:30-1:30) once a week for five weeks, helping to serve the food and clean up. The paid and volunteer staff and dining room director were great to work with, the customers were friendly, and the experience kept us in touch with the variety of persistent, urgent needs of New Haven's community members. -Kevin
