COOKING AT THE KANSAS CITY COMMUNITY KITCHEN

One of the great advantages of our partnership with VolunteerMark is that the company offers us a unique link to charities all over the Kansas City area. From that pool, I would like to introduceEpiscopal Community Services.

A few fast facts for you. ECS is a cooperate network of anti-hunger ministries that serves more than one million meals yearly to the homeless and working poor in our community. Through several of its programs such as the Kansas City Community Kitchen, Meals on Wheels, the Episcopal Hunger Relief Network and Breakfast at St. Paul’s, the ECS is helping eliminate hunger for thousands of Kansas City families.

“…from which they serve anywhere from 400 to 600 meals daily, they also have a gob of volunteer opportunities.”

I bring all this up because recently I was able to visit the wonderful folks at the Kansas City Community Kitchen. Not only do they have a fine operation, from which they serve anywhere from 400 to 600 meals daily, they also have a gob of volunteer opportunities.

From food prep in the morning and evening to serving meals at lunch, the Kansas City Community Kitchen needs help throughout the week. They even have weekend projects for groups of all sizes.

We are looking to get a batch of volunteers into the kitchen as soon as possible. Please contact us if you are interested.
