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.

Thank you Old Saybrook Rotary Club, and President Gerri Lewis, for the recent donation of $1,500!


Baristas at the Old Saybrook Starbucks presented SSKP volunteer Lindas Dillon with a $300 donation, proceeds from their 2nd Annual Holiday Ornament sale, featuring hand decorated coffee cup ornaments. Thank you, Starbucks! 


Connecticut Water recently made a $2,500 donation to SSKP’s “Gowrie Challenge, through a special promotion held in 2016. Between April and October, every time a CT Water customer signed up for paperless E-billing, the company pledged a $1 donation to benefit local food pantries. By joining the Gowrie Challenge, they were able to leverage their gift with matching funds, helping to provide even more food to those in need.

“Water and food are two things that everyone recognizes as our most basic needs”, said Patty Dowling, SSKP Executive Director. “We feel so blessed that CT Water and their customers came together to provide such generous support to our community. Thank you!”
