Since the 1970's Christ Church has hosted the Community Soup Kitchen, making available the use of the kitchen and dining hall of our parish house five days a week. A non-sectarian charity with an independent Board, the Community Soup Kitchen is the largest organization of its kind in New Haven. It provides a vital service to New Haven 's neediest, as well as an opportunity for parishioners, local residents, and college students to serve the poor.

In keeping with our historic connection to St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, in the Newhallville section of New Haven, we have begun an ongoing collection of non-perishable food items for distribution to needy families in New Haven's poorest neighborhoods. The Third Sunday of the Month is now Food Drive Ingathering- and you are welcome to bring a bag full or just a couple of items to contribute to the Food Pantry at St Andrew's Church.
“RUN” to Help the Homeless The ‘Midnight Run' is an ongoing ecumenical mission program striving to serve the needs of the homeless poor in New Haven by distributing donated food and clothing throughout the year. Christ Church joins the “Run” on the first Monday of each month ~ year ‘round . Volunteers meet at 8pm Center Church on the New Haven green. For more info please contact Wanda Strickland.
