Feeding the Hungry Along the Shoreline PDF Print E-mail

The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries provides food and fellowship to those in need.  We serve the Connecticut shoreline towns of Essex, Chester, Clinton, Madison, Old Saybrook, East Lyme, Lyme, Old Lyme, Killingworth, Westbrook and Deep River.

We provide approximately 900,000 meals worth of food each year.

  • Home-style meals are served each day at one of our meal sites.
  • Groceries are available each week at one of our five food pantries.
  • Frozen, microwaveable meals are prepared by our Heat-n-Eat kitchens.

We are an interfaith ministry, with all locations hosted by faith communities.

Over 800 volunteers prepare meals and drive trucks.

Our work is sustained entirely by donors.

George Winston Concert Includes Food & Fund Drive for SSKP PDF Print E-mail
Grammy Award-winning pianist George Winston will be performing at The Kate on April 14th, and has invited attendees to show their support by bringing donations of food and funds for The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries.


George Winston, one of the best known performers playing contemporary instrumental music, regularly supports organizations dedicated to hunger relief. At every concert he asks the audience to bring food items to support a local food pantry, and always donates proceeds from concert CD sales to help feed the hungry.
