We're ready for curbside service!

Tweaking how we do our dinners - curbside meals, social distancing and face masks -- but keeping our standard smiles.

Wherever there's a need, there's always a helping hand (or two).

We're ready for curbside service!


Thank you for visiting Knox Prairie Community Kitchen (KPCK). We are a not-for-profit 501(c)3 volunteer organization in Galesburg, Illinois. Our mission is to serve our neighbors nutritious food, with dignity and respect.

We strengthen our community by sharing meals, and by engaging in outreach and educational activities related to food insecurity.
We invite you to explore our website to learn more about KPCK, attend a free community meal, and become involved as a volunteer or donor. Thank you for visiting our website!
