Evening Meals Program
In order to avoid public gatherings of large numbers of people in an enclosed space, DESK is serving all dinners as “grab-and-go” in take-out containers or bags. We currently are serving Sunday through Thursday at 5:00 pm. We do not require any documentation or proof of eligibility or residence.
Weekly Food Pantry
DESK’s weekly Food Pantry is operating during the COVID-19 crisis as pre-prepared “grab-and-go” bags. We are open every Wednesday between 2:00 and 3:00 pm. We do not require any documentation or proof of eligibility or residence. Just show up! If this time does not work, please see this online list of pantries that are operating during pandemic. If you are over 60, immuno-compromised, or have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent weeks, please consider signing up for the Pantry t0 Pantry Food Delivery Program (below).
Pantry to Pantry Food Delivery Program
After an extremely successful interagency effort this past spring and summer, DESK and Loaves & Fishes transferred all operations of the Pantry to Pantry program over to our partners at FISH of Greater New Haven. Please contact (203) 503-0107 for more information.
If you are interested in matching or donating to any of the agencies that the Christian Service Board has screened and contributed to, contact Jinny Schneider at firstname.lastname@example.org
