New Covenant Center works toward ending hunger in Stamford and the surrounding communities. All proceeds from Celebrity Breakfast goes towards NCC and with the help of generous donors and volunteers, we serve over 725 hot lunches and dinners every day and provide approximately 700,000 meals a year, approximately 450,000 from the Food Pantry, 200,000 from the Café, 20,000 Breakfasts-to-Go, and 10,000 dinners for Inspirica House.

Whether our guests are homeless, hungry, disadvantaged, elderly or working poor, we make sure their bodies are nourished with a healthy meal and their souls are nourished with dignity, respect and kindness.

The Café serves two hot meals, seven days a week, 365 days a year, at no charge to our guests. The Food Pantry offers groceries to those families who have difficulty making ends meet and are unable to eat during soup kitchen hours. The food pantry is open once a week and currently provides over 700 families with 10 to 12 meals per month.

Breakfast-to-Go Programs allow guests to pick up cold breakfast bags during dinners hours so they can start off the following day with a healthy meal.

In addition to helping those in need, this is a great networking opportunity.
