Knox Prairie Community Kitchen is run entirely by volunteers. We could not continue to be successful without their generous support and time invested.


There are many different areas within the organization in which to volunteer. Between our free community meals, our garden project, and our various committees, there are plenty of ways to help us achieve our mission.


Please visit our PROJECTS page to see what all we are up to!


We have found that word of mouth is truly the most successful way of gaining more guests, volunteers, board members, and sponsors. This goes hand in hand with our philosophy that relationships are vital for maintaining a healthy sense of community.


Please consider being an advocate for the Knox Prairie Community Kitchen by sharing our flyers and event information with your family, friends, and neighbors. You could even bring them along to our community meals to participate in good conversation and relationship-building with one another.

We could not continue our mission without the generous support of the community. We are funded almost entirely by donations from local organizations, businesses, and individuals.


If you are part of a group, organization, or business, donating to KPCK is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to strengthening our community.
