Feeding the Hungry Along the Shoreline

blue dark

get helpThe Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries is an interfaith service that provides food and fellowship to those in need and educates our community on hunger and poverty.

Our pantries located in Old Saybrook, Westbrook, Clinton, Old Lyme and East Lyme provide enough food for three meals for three days for those who attend, and those in their household.  The food distributed includes both fresh meat, vegetables, fruit, and dairy and non-perishable canned and packaged food. Residents of the eleven towns served by SSKP are welcome to attend one distribution per week.

Our meal sites are located in Centerbrook, Essex, Deep River, Chester, Old Saybrook, Clinton, and Westbrook.  Hot nutritious meals are prepared by volunteers and served family style.  Those in need are welcome to attend all our meal sites.  See schedule here.
