Summer-time Is Volunteering-time!

Summer has arrived!  And while that may mean sunshine, beaches, and ice cream to many, for Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen it means hard work to ensure that everyone has a place to eat.  As the weather improves, so many more people are living on the street in New Haven.  The lines to get into our dining room stretch and our numbers swell.  

Volunteers are essential to meeting this need.

For many of our regular volunteers, summer also means vacation.  With college students returning home, we see our ranks thin out during July and August -- our busiest time of year!  That is why we need YOU now more than ever.  

Signing up to volunteer is very easy.  Simply visit our SignUp.com page, find a date and shift that works for you, and you're set!  You can even sign up multiple people at once.  You'll get a reminder email three days ahead of your scheduled time.  If you have to cancel, no problem: just go back onto the SignUp.com page and remove yourself.  

Got questions?  Check out the Volunteer page on our website to find a list of guidelines for volunteering at DESK.

Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen exists because of dedicated volunteers just like YOU.  Without your help and support, we cannot feed over 2,000 individuals each year.  YOU make all this possible!  Thank you!

Open Streets Project Revamped

The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year.

A Market That Kindles Culture and Commerce

In St. Paul, MN, a summer celebration of arts and entrepreneurship, modeled on night markets in Asia, has galvanized commerce and culture along University Avenue. LISC's longtime partner, the Asian Economic Development Association, is leading the charge to revitalize the district, where Southeast Asian residents and businesspeople have incorporated a "a Minnesota twist."

How Arts and Culture Can Catalyze Rural Development

In an interview for Rural Voices, a publication of the Housing Assistance Council, Bob Reeder, Rural LISC's director for national programs, discusses the importance of inclusion, diversity and economic equity when bringing arts and culture into community development efforts. With those key ingredients, creative placemaking can be a winning proposition for rural revitalization.

What a Farmers Market Can Do

In honor of National Farmers Market Week (August 6 to 12), we’re recognizing the extraordinary markets that LISC has helped launch, grow and support, and how much good they bring to their communities.
