Knox Prairie Community Kitchen runs on the goodwill and hard work of community volunteers.

We welcome individuals or groups who are interested in volunteering. To reserve a date for your group, organization, or business, please email us 

Volunteers participate in the following activities:

  • Greet guests at the door and hand out tickets

  • Staff the giveaway tables

  • Serve drinks, assist those with mobility issues, bus tables 

  • Work in the kitchen--washing dishes, replenishing drinks for the dining room, etc.

  • Help with clean up of the dining room, kitchen, and storeroom--wiping down tables, putting away supplies, sweeping, mopping, etc.

  • If you have any special skills or experience, and would like to help in other ways, please email us, volunteerkpck@gmail.com

Age and Physical Requirements:

Due to the physical nature of the work, we prefer volunteers to be 12 years of age and older.

If you are a parent or organizational leader and would like younger children to experience volunteerism with KPCK, please email us (volunteeerkpck@gmail.com) to discuss how children can be involved in volunteering.

Chemical Usage. As part of regular cleaning and sanitizing KPCK uses industry-standard chemicals. Training on proper usage and safety are available to all volunteers.
