"Great food, great conversation, and great people will

make you feel at home".

It all started when Essex community leaders, including clergy, got together to discuss how best to feed those in our neighborhoods who hunger for food, relationship, and connection.  Heart & Soul of Essex identified Community Connections as a shared value in our neighborhoods.  Essex Eats Out seeks to build on this shared value by providing healthy, free meals in a warm, safe, and inclusive atmosphere.


IMPORTANT....ALL ESSEX EATS OUT MEALS are cancelled until further notice due to concerns about COVID-19
