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.

Due to the COVID pandemic, to keep our core group of volunteers and those who attend our curbside dinners as safe and healthy as possible we are not seeking outside volunteers at this time.

We know so many goodhearted, giving people look forward to helping us and we are grateful for the community support we always receive.

We, also, know you understand why we had to make this decision and we hope you'll be back to lend a hand when safer times return. 

In the end, we only have each other.

 

Be safe and take care!
