Friends of KPCK

Friends and neighbors are who we help and serve at Knox Prairie Community Kitchen but we couldn't do what we do without the help of more friends and neighbors.
We are grateful to Galesburg and surrounding communities for their support and help. We would specifically like to thank the groups below.
First Baptist Church
169 S. Cherry St., Galesburg

In the summer of 2018, we formed a new partnership with First Baptist Church and started holding our dinners at the new location in July. The leadership at First Baptist Church has been generous and welcoming during the transition process and we look forward to working with them for many years to come while serving the Galesburg community.

Old Main on Knox College Campus
Knox College

Knox students, staff, faculty, and administration have given generously to KPCK throughout the years. We appreciate their support and look forward to working with them in the future.



Volunteers from KCCDD have been a huge asset to KPCK. Starting in early 2014, volunteers have joined us the morning of every dinner to help set our tables. This is a crucial part of our free community meals and we could not do it without the help of KCCDD volunteers!

Central Congregational Church​

The congregation of the Central Congregational Church invited KPCK to use their kitchen and dining room in the fall of 2012. CCC was home to KPCK for almost 6 years. We are grateful to them for their generosity throughout the years.
