The Knox Prairie Community Kitchen would be nothing without the support of those in this community. From the people who help before, during, and after the dinners to those who come to share a delicious meal and good company, we are so grateful and deserve to be shown off!   

If you have photos from the dinners you'd like to share on our website and Facebook page, please send them to us at volunteerkpck@mail.com.

Paul has been coming to our dinners for years, always with a smile and kinds words to share.

Rob, Kim & Bob

Though few people see the behind the scenes help that's given, those who wash & sanitize the dishes during the rush of the evening deserve praise & accolades! But, they do it all with smiles and good cheer.

Thanksgiving

Our Friendsgiving - Thanksgiving meal set a record of number of people we served. In total, 262 people had a hot, deicilious made-with-love/care/kindness dinner that evening.

Washing dishes during the dinners is seemingly never-ending work that can be extremely strenuous, too. But you'd never know it from our volunteers who never complain and always push forward with a smile.

We try to make each meal nutritious and varied so people get a chance to enjoy something different. Like, for example, "Porcupine Meatloaf" -- sooooooooo good!
