Kansas City Community Kitchen
For more than 35 years, the Kansas City Community Kitchen has been serving hot, nutritious meals to all who come with no questions asked. We believe that food is most basic human right and the table is an automatic equalizer – all of us need to eat and we all deserve food that nourishes our bodies and minds.
Our work is made possible by hundreds of donors from area churches, food growers, grocery stores, Harvesters food bank, diverse faith groups, civic organizations, and businesses. We invite you to join us for lunch any weekday!
The dining room is staffed by thousands of volunteers from area churches, schools, youth groups, businesses and civic organizations. They work with our culinary students & kitchen team to offer a restaurant-like atmosphere to give guests a delicious meal that not only fills their stomachs, but nourishes their bodies and minds.
