Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen (DESK)

Trinity volunteers are active at two soup kitchens in New Haven,  Columbus House and the Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen (DESK).  Each provides sustenance, comfort and fellowship to those in need who otherwise have little means of fending for themselves. Trinity volunteers choose and work assigned shifts once a month or more frequently — a few hours in early evening each time.

The Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen’s programs serve a diverse community of New-Haven-area at-risk individuals, families and children who are “food insecure.” These programs for many are satisfying the basic day-after-day need for nourishing food.

DESK serves dinner every evening of the week. Trinity participates the second Tuesday each month from 5:15 to 6:30 PM at the Center Church Parish House, 311 Temple Street. If you want to help, contact Chuck Kaywood.
