Feeding the Hungry Along the Shoreline PDF Print E-mail

The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries provides food and fellowship to those in need.  We serve the Connecticut shoreline towns of Essex, Chester, Clinton, Madison, Old Saybrook, East Lyme, Lyme, Old Lyme, Killingworth, Westbrook and Deep River.

We provide approximately 900,000 meals worth of food each year.

  • Home-style meals are served each day at one of our meal sites.
  • Groceries are available each week at one of our five food pantries.
  • Frozen, microwaveable meals are prepared by our Heat-n-Eat kitchens.

We are an interfaith ministry, with all locations hosted by faith communities.

Over 800 volunteers prepare meals and drive trucks.

Our work is sustained entirely by donors.
