In 1981, hunger bcame a known way of life for many Connecticut residents. To relieve the people's hunger, Father Cascia established a Soup Kitchen in the Hispanic neighborhood on South Main Street in Waterbury. The Soup Kitchen allows the area's poor to receive, at no cost to them, over 600 nutritionally balanced hot, noon time meals, served six days a week. The Soup Kitchen Manager also provides a referral service to individuals who express a need. On March 1, 1997 the Soup Kitchen closed and reopened as the Merriman Culinary School / Kitchen. We are able to provide an education and training program to teach the homeles adults living in the shelter a work ethic, and at the same time, restaurant job skills.
