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 nutritious food to our neighbors, with dignity and respect. We strengthen our community by sharing meals, and by engaging in outreach and educational activities related
to food security.
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!

On Thursday, aug. 13th,
we will be providing FREE no-contact curbside meals to-go, along with prepackaged non-perishable goods (one bag per household on the give-away items) from 5 pm until 6 pm.

This evening's menu:
2-pc fried chicken
mashed potatoes with gravy

We are asking everyone who shows up to please observe the 6ft social distancing rule and to wear a face mask.
No one will be admitted into the church & should be prepared to wait outside at the Tomkpins Street entrance (not 169 S. Cherry Street). If you arrive by vehicle, we ask you to please line up
on the north side of Tompkins Street only.  We cannot cross traffic
