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, and Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner.

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.



We are in the process of setting up legacy donations with the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven. We hope to have more updates soon.
