Our meal sites are located in Woodstock, Putnam, Danielson, and Moosup. See schedule here.
Hot nutritious meals are prepared by volunteers. Our meals have become communities of support for our guests, addressing the basic human need for companionship, socialization, and emotional solace providing resources for those in pursuit of self-sufficiency. In short, we feed the body and the soul in an environment of care, support, and safety to individuals and families that come through our doors. Ours is an Open Table ~ Everyone is Welcome !
In October of 1982, the people of 211 Infoline, a service of the United Way, called together a group of concerned clergy and social agencies to consider the problem that many people in the area were unable to provide for themselves and their families. The group which gathered that day established what has become the Community Kitchens of Northeastern Connecticut, Inc. We are now providing a hot meal five days a week at one of five different locations (see schedule). All meals are free and all are welcomed. Though initially established with those experiencing poverty in mind, we have found that poverty takes many forms. Our mission has evolved not only to provide nutritious meals for the body, but also to address the basic human need for companionship and society.
