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 – 12:30 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 Magee-Corvo, 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.  In addition to meals, we have:

          • Writers Bloc – a group which meets weekly to explore the world of writing, sharing their own creative work and exploring this form of expression

          • SKAB – Soup Kitchen Advisory Board.  Regular guests of the soup kitchen who share thoughts and input on dining room policies.

          • L.E.A.D (Leadership, Empowerment, Advocacy, and Development) is a speaker’s bureau made up of individuals who have experienced homelessness, meeting twice monthly.

          • Referrals for things like:    Flu Shots        Health Screenings         Dental Clinics        Foot Care Days

          • Free Eye Exams and Access to Eye Glasses        Veteran’s Services        Substance Abuse & Behavioral Health Concerns
