What is the best time to drop off donations?

The best time is early afternoon – from 1:30 to 2:30pm when the kitchen crew is preparing the afternoon meal.   Late afternoon between 4pm and 5pm is also good.  If you want to drop off things at other times, please call ahead

I'm volunteering at Dorothy Day House.  Where can I park?  

We now have a small (3 car) lot at 8 Spring Street (on the other side of Spring Street towards downtown Danbury).   Otherwise, you can park is in the lot at St Paul's Church at the end of Spring St.   Please do not park in front of the soup kitchen if you are staying more than 15 minutes -- the signs say 15 minute parking and you may be ticketed!!

I have some leftover food from a party.  Can you use it at Dorothy Day House?

Cookies and non-temperature sensitive food donations are always welcome.   If you have full trays of food prepared by a licensed food service establishment (ex restaurant or caterer) which has been kept under proper temperature control, then we will be glad to accept to accept it.
