NVCC Students and Staff Feed the Hungry at Waterbury Soup Kitchen

Twenty NVCC students and staff rolled up their sleeves on a recent Sunday afternoon to help feed the hungry at the St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury Soup Kitchen. Students and staff also volunteered time to perform a clean-up that included washing floors, cleaning ovens, and prepping meals at the kitchen. Open 365 days a year, the soup kitchen prepares more than 127,750 cooked meals per year and serves 350 per day. It allows the populations whom it serves to receive a nutritionally-balanced hot noon-time meal. The effort was hosted by NVCC’s Student Activities office. Karen Blake, Director of Student Activities at NVCC, explains that NVCC students open and staff the kitchen every Sunday, an initiative started by the College’s Hispanic Student Union Club in 2008.

“Our student body is very active and invested in our community, and volunteering is core to NVCC’s mission of being an engine of change within Waterbury and the broader community,” said Blake.
