Feeling the love of Community
Making people SMILE!
In normal times, the Community Kitchen of Torrington 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, and the need for our services is increasing.
