  • hours of operation:
  • Monday-Friday
  • lunch served from 11:30am – 1:00pm
  • dinner served from 5:30pm – 6:30pm

At our Community Kitchen, a team of volunteers cook and serve hot, nutritious meals to an average of 50 individuals, Monday-Friday, 52 weeks a year. Lunch and dinner times are subject to change on holidays or during inclement weather. Please call the 50 Nichols street location directly at (203) 254-2935 for up-to-date information. Unfortunately, far too many people in our community do not have enough money left after paying for housing or other basic necessities to purchase food.

We are fortunate to receive donations of meals from churches, synagogues, school groups, individuals and families. Individuals and groups do the cooking and serving, as well as donate the food for each meal. Donations are accepted at 50 Nichols Street Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm. Please do not leave food outside the building. If you are interested in contributing a meal to feed 50 people, please contact Volunteer Program Manager Donna Schmidt at dschmidt@operationhopect.org.
