For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.  Matthew 25:35

The Meriden Soup Kitchen, founded in 1983 in Meriden CT, feeds the hungry. A complete nutritious meal is served 11:00 am - 12:30 pm Monday-Friday throughout the year, In 1983, a total of 7,030 meals were served, increasing to 37,975 meals during 2018.

Seven teams of volunteers prepare and serve the meals which generally consist of hot soup, a hot entrée (usually with a vegetable and a carbohydrate), freshly made salad, bread and butter, hot and cold beverages, and a variety of desserts. Clients are able to take home a variety of wrapped bakery items supplied by area stores, along with fresh vegetables and fruits when available.

The number of meals served daily averages between 140-170, sometimes reaching as many as 250. Anyone who enters the MSK is served a meal – sex, age, nationality or any other criteria are not factors. An accurate tabulation of meals served daily is maintained. During the weekend, meals are available from the nearby Salvation Army.

The Student Council of Thomas Hooker Elementary School completed a food drive to benefit the clients of the Meriden Soup Kitchen, and it was delivered on May 16, 2018 by Pete Stoker and Matt Dominello. This is the seventh year that Hooker has mounted a food drive, which this year brought in an amazing 335 lbs. of non-perishable food. Many thanks to the students, parents and staff of Thomas Hooker for this very successful drive.
