NEW UPDATE: To Patrons and Families
Changing Operations as we Navigate COVID-19

As the situation with COVID–19 is extremely dynamic we will continue to make proactive decisions that are grounded in care for our patrons and volunteers based in transparency and science, while also doing our part to help stop the spread of the virus.
Starting on Monday, March 30th, St. Paul’s Soup Kitchen will be temporarily suspending our meal program at Eliot Church at 273 Summer St. Lowell, MA. as we merge with our non-profit partners to consolidate our meal programs into one central location to limit interactions and reduce foot traffic in the city, while still allowing people get their needs met.
On Monday, March 30th, all meals and needs in Lowell will be distributed from the Life Connection parking lot at 192 Appleton St., where toilets and handwashing are also available. Meal bags will be distributed between 11:30 am – 2pm and toilets will be available Monday through Friday 9 am – 4 pm. As additional services become available, they will be added to the digital display board at 192 Appleton St. Lowell, MA.


St. Paul’s Kitchen was started in 2000 by Rose Bronk, a member of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. When St. Paul’s closed, Eliot Church took over as the host church.

Between eighty and one hundred and sixty homeless and disadvantaged people come for a hot meal every weekday evening, Monday through Friday, 52 weeks a year, rain or shine. Food is served from 5 to 6 p.m.

Several area Protestant churches and other organizations take turns preparing and serving the meals.
