  • Description: Community Soup Kitchen provides lunch weekdays (except Wednesday) at our Broadway location, in the Parish House of the Christ Church, Episcopal. Working with four other sites, we also offer breakfast to the homeless and hungry four days a week. In addition to providing free nutritious meals, Community Soup Kitchen acts as a host site for agencies that offer various assistance to our guests, such as Hill Health Center, and the ACCESS mental health outreach team, as well as employment and pre-employment resources. Twice each week we work with Saint Luke’s Services to provide lunch for needy women and children. We also provide bagged lunches for the homeless outreach program at Fellowship Place. Community Soup Kitchen’s operating budget is approximately $375,000. We do not receive state or federal funds. We do, however, receive some food from government programs, and have received grants from the City of New Haven to sustain our work. Community Soup Kitchen has a paid staff of three, and a volunteer coordinator and all-volunteer Board. We also have many dedicated volunteers from Yale and the wider community, court mandated workers, and clients of Chapel Haven who participate in rehabilitative programs featuring work in our kitchen and dining room. Our guests include the jobless, homeless, elderly, those living with AIDS, those living on welfare, the mentally ill, chronic substance abusers, single parents, the working poor, veterans, and the lonely and hungry people of our community.
