The Kitchen celebrates one year anniversary
The Kitchen, located on West Ohio St., celebrated their one-year anniversary with a ribbon cutting on Monday, September 11th.
According to Rhonda Howard, a year ago Belmont Church took over the operations of the kitchen, as they pay the rent and utilities for the building.
The Kitchen provides 160 meals on Monday and Thursday evenings for anyone in the community. They also feed Kentucky Christian Recovery Sober Living residents.
The Kitchen has 13 teams that cook the meals and several volunteers. The Kitchen is non-denominational and non-political, as a variety of churches and organizations work with The Kitchen. Refreshments are provided for all volunteers.
“God laid this on my heart to help,” expressed Howard.
Some evenings the teams cook off-site and some evenings they cook at The Kitchen. Tonya Farris shared a list of items that are needed when cooking at The Kitchen. To find that list, please click on the following link: Kitchen Items.pdf
Mayor Billy Phelps was on hand for the celebration. The City Council has extended the hours of the MOGO Bus to provide transportation and deliveries to and from The Kitchen.
The Kitchen is always in need of volunteers and appreciate everything the community has done to support them.
