Hunger Heroes is a Yale organization that serves leftover food from dining halls at one of the only Friday and Saturday evening soup kitchens in New Haven. We send 8-10 students to serve at the DESK satellite kitchen (323 Temple Street, across from TD) each Friday and Saturday. Volunteering on is from 5:30 to 7:30 on Friday and from 4:30 to 6:30 on Saturday. Please contact Brandon Hudik or Robert LaRose to volunteer – both individuals and groups are always welcome! Students sign up for each weekend separately, so there is no need to commit to a whole semester.
Kitchen to Kitchen
Kitchen to Kitchen is a Yale organization that safely transports leftover food from dining halls to the DESK kitchen each afternoon, Monday through Thursday. Students commit to delivering food one afternoon a week (usually ~2 PM to 4 PM) for a semester. If you would like to volunteer with Kitchen to Kitchen, please contact William Giraldo
If you have any general questions about getting involved with DESK as a Yale student, please contact Yale Hunger and Homelessness Action Project board member Ruth Hanna. We hope to see you at the soup kitchen!
