We are committed to providing a nutritious meal to any individual who, for whatever reason, is unable to provide a proper meal for himself or herself.

The Torrington Soup Kitchen

Welcome to the Torrington Soup Kitchen website!
The Torrington Soup Kitchen has been in operation since 1983 and is proud to serve the entire county of Litchfield Connecticut (not just Torrington).

Even though the Community Kitchen does not receive local, state or federal funding, we served 38,971 meals during 2008. This number included over 200 children. An average of 90 - 122 meals per day were served.

Our operating budget is supported solely by the generous donations from the public and through grants. Volunteers assist daily with the food preparation, serving, clean up and weekend coverage.

The Community Soup Kitchen is more than just a site to receive a nutritious hot meal. It is a place people come to for daily contact with others and a place that provides an opportunity for individuals to meet staff from area agencies and programs for assistance with the many needs and problems they experience. The soup kitchen serves people from all walks of life, including homeless individuals and families and the working disadvantaged.
