Review for Community Kitchen Inc, Columbus, OH, USA
The Community Kitchen is not well known from a philanthropic standpoint and needs a lot more in the way of donations--food, supplies, crafts and games. I volunteer on Wednesday evenings which is family dinner. Parents and children are welcomed with open arms and no registration or referral required. A hot meal is served and volunteers do crafts and play games with the children. Donated books are available for them to take home. I see middle school and high school boys and girls sitting together playing board games after dinner, children making crafts and girls playing hool-a-hoop. The evening ends too quickly for most of the kids. The Community Kitchen also serves breakfast and lunch. They have been giving out school supplies and these children are thrilled to receive even the smallest treat. They are so grateful and never ask for anything that isn't already provided. Sometimes the cook has to put together a meal with very sparse resources. They are not currently receiving help from United Way but are trying to and need the help. The few paid staff members have a dedication that is remarkable but volunteers are always needed.
