Stop & Shop Matching Donations to the Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen up to $2,500!

Stop & Shop and the Faxon Law New Haven Road Race are teaming up to help feed New Haven residents struggling with hunger during this critical time. The virtual road race is focusing on community organizations most affected by COVID-19, and are asking participants to consider donating to the Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen (DESK) during online registration. Stop & Shop will match all donations up to $2,500.

DESK serves over 4,000 people who are experiencing homelessness or living in poverty by providing food assistance and services that promote health, community, and equity. At the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic, DESK moved quickly to partner with our sister agencies to develop and launch a new program, called Pantry-to-Pantry, to ensure that those who are immunocompromised and should not be leaving their homes would have the food they need. Today, more than 100 volunteers deliver groceries to over 1,100 households.
