A percentage of all money raised by the Lord’s Kitchen in the months of March and April will be matched by The Feinstein Foundation! Our mission at the Lord’s Kitchen is to assist those in need by providing food, clothing and shelter in a stabilizing environment through physical resources and spiritual encouragement, while fostering hope for tomorrow. We currently celebrate over 5 million meals served to those in need! That means that all donations to The Lord’s Kitchen will have a much greater impact right now than at any other time during the year. Please help us feed the less fortunate!
