Financial Support

The generous support of individual donors makes up 37% of our annual operating budget. Your donation goes directly towards feeding our hungriest neighbors in and around New Haven.

All donations to the Community Soup Kitchen are tax-deductible.

In Kind Donations

In kind donations allow us to keep our average cost-per-plate far below the national average. If we cannot use a donation, we will pass it along to another feeding organization or give it to one of our guests to take home.

Our current needs are: vegetables in #10 cans, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, oatmeal and grits in large containers, granola bars, laundry detergent, bleach, Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner, laptop computers, and HP 61 printer ink cartridges.

If you would like to support us with an in-kind donation, bring it to our main dining room at 84 Broadway Monday-Friday 8:00am-2:30pm, Saturday 8:00am-11:00am, or call us at (203) 624-4594.


Legacy Planning

We are in the process of setting up legacy donations with the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven. Ask us for more information at or by calling us at (203) 624-4594.
