Volunteer At The Kitchen


 

The Lord’s Kitchen has been “feeding the hungry . . . 365 days a year”, since Christmas Day, 1988. To date, we have served over 4.9 million meals to anyone in need.

The Lord’s Kitchen assists those in need, providing food, clothing, and shelter in a stabilizing environment through physical resources and spiritual encouragement, while fostering hope for tomorrow.

We teach life skills with practical applications. These skills can be translated to the participants in their social and work environment, enabling a higher probability of success.
