Founded in 1985, the Community Dining Room (CDR) is a private, not-for-profit organization providing food, support, and companionship to our shoreline neighbors. We serve the south-central Connecticut shoreline, including East Haven, Branford, North Branford, and Guilford.
The Community Dining Room is committed to providing meals to the community and supporting basic human needs. Our vision is to see a well-nourished community. We strive to promote public awareness of the impact of hunger and isolation in our society. We are dedicated to helping our guests with their practical needs through referrals and fellowship.
Our Executive Director, Judith Barron, acts as a client advocate, working with community agencies, local welfare offices, businesses, and health care providers to identify available resources.
