The pandemic has truly brought out a lot of skills, talents, and needs across our country and specifically our community. It is in times such as these that we find a way to join together and make positive changes for our community. A fantastic example of this was started around 35 years ago at the Caring Kitchen. Founders, Carol and Nedra Norman, were able to utilize their skills to bring together an opportunity for those in need to get the vital necessities without bias.
The Caring Kitchen not only operates as a soup kitchen where everyone is welcomed with open arms, they also have a food pantry and clothing available to meet those needs, too. For our community members with nowhere to stay, the Caring Kitchen operates as an emergency shelter in addition to that hot meal talked about earlier. In addition to these staples being provided for, other services available. Without a doubt, the Caring Kitchen is one way that our community has been able to show LOVE for more than three decades. The best part is that there are opportunities for you to be able to be a part of that story.
By going to the Caring Kitchen's website, anyone can find ways to call ahead and learn how to help others in need. From the Thanksgiving Meal to the Backpack Program, there are many ways to get involved and be a part of serving our community! No matter your skill set, helping serve a hot meal is a great way to experience the love of the Caring Kitchen. Their dedication to the community gives us joy in being able to provide them a website to connect with others.
