The Soup Kitchen needs:  Sliced bread to make sandwiches, lunch meats, canned tuna & cheese.  Also, protein and granola bars, individual beverages or juice boxes, bottled water, individual yogurts, cheese sticks, fruit cups and bagged individual serving snacks (like pretzels).  Bring donations to 617 Main Street, Middletown from 7:00 AM – 1:00 PM Monday through Saturday, or call for after hours donations.

The Basics

Due to the COVID19 protocols issued by the State of Connecticut, our dining room is closed.  We are, however, offering a take-out meal at 617 Main Street from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM Monday through Saturday.  We also send sandwiches and snacks home when they are available.

A Soup Kitchen with much more than food on the menu.

Meet Lisa Metz, Food Service Manager at St. Vincent de Paul Middletown.

She runs one of the friendliest and most welcoming soup kitchens that you will ever experience.  Restaurant quality dishes and balanced nutrition are just the beginning.  She gets to know each member of our community, making sure that the opportunity for a better life is within reach for our guests.

Interested in Volunteering?

There is always a lot to do in a soup kitchen.  Prepping vegetables, making sandwiches, working on the serving line during breakfast or lunch periods…  If you’d like to learn more about volunteer opportunities, click the green link on the top right of this page, and fill out a volunteer application.  Don’t forget to hit the submit button at the bottom of the page!  Lisa will reach out to you soon!

Special note:  During the COVID-19 pandemic, the dining room is closed and volunteer opportunities are extremely limited.  We are grateful to the community for the fabulous amount of support and understanding while we rotate to a take-out model for food supplied to the community at large.  We will get the dining room open again as soon as it is truly safe – for guests, for volunteers and for staff.
