Friends of KPCK
The Knox Prairie Community Kitchen wouldn't be able to accomplish our goals & mission without the generosity and benevolence of individuals, businesses and organizations in and around this amazing community .
We are grateful for the support and help from everyone but we would specifically like to thank these particular groups below:
169 S. Cherry Street Galesburg, IL
In the summer of 2018, we formed a new
partnership with First Baptist Church and
started holding our dinners in July that
same year. The people at First Baptist
Church have been generous and
accommodating, and we look forward to
working with them for many years to come
while serving the Galesburg community.

Knox College is just one of 40 schools featured in Loren
Pope's, influential book, Colleges That Change Lives,
which is just one of the reasons we are honored
to have worked with Knox students, staff, faculty, and
administrators throughout the years. We appreciate
their support and look forward to our continued
partnership with the college.
2015 Windish Drive, Galesburg, IL
Starting in early 2014, KCCDD volunteers have joined
us on Thursday morning of every dinner to help
set our dining room tables. This is a crucial part of our
free community meals and we would not be able to do
what we do without their dedication and support.
60 Public Square, Galesburg, IL 61401
The congregation of the Central Congregational
Church graciously invited KPCK to use their kitchen
and dining room in the fall of 2012, and the
church remained home to KPCK for almost 6 years.
Though we have since moved, we remain grateful to
them for their generosity during those years.

Riverbend Foodbank's motto is "Together We Can
Solve Hunger". Not only do they work with agencies
in 23 different counties in Illinois & Iowa but, every
dinner we prepare, most every food item we place on
our "take home" tables has been provided by the
Riverbend Foodbank at either a discount or at no
charge. We simply couldn't do what we do without
Riverbend, and we are forever grateful.
FISH FOOD PANTRY
688 Hawthorne Court, Galesburg, IL 61401
At each dinner, the Knox Prairie Community Kitchen
not only provides freshly prepared meals to area
residents but we also try to provide a sampling of
perishable & nonperishable food items for diners to
select from to take home. FISH has always
been a sponsor of these "take home" items providing
a variety of baked breads, dinner rolls, buns &
pastries to for us to set out.
