Community Kitchen

Chicago, Illinois


The Community Kitchen is a food service program providing complementary box lunches to in-need residents, families and workers in Chicago. The Community Kitchen and the Community Canteen provide over 3,600 hot, fresh meals a week to local senior housing complexes, food pantries, community centers, hospital workers and residents of Chicago.

Meals are created by our team of chefs and industry partners. We source proteins, produce and baked goods from local farms and bakeries whenever possible.

The Community Kitchen + Canteen program provides work to chefs, cooks, and front-of-house hospitality workers who have lost their businesses or employment due to the pandemic. We work with a network of restaurants and chefs throughout Chicagoland.
