Kinship Community Food Center

OUR STORY HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT OUR DEEP DESIRE TO SERVE ONE ANOTHER THROUGH THE POWER OF FOOD. By growing, cooking, and sharing healthy food we not only nourish our bodies, but also nourish one another’s souls. AT KINSHIP COMMUNITY FOOD CENTER, FEEDING HUNGER IS A CATALYST FOR THE WELL-BEING OF OUR COMMUNITY. Everyone Gives. Everyone Receives. There’s a wonderful transformation that happens in our hearts when we’re called out of our isolation and into community. Here, when any member of our community discovers the gift they are meant to give and the gift they are meant to receive, it can surprise, heal, and bring new life and purpose. This is true whether you’re a volunteer, shopper, or a donor. By helping one another amidst the diversity of our backgrounds, our needs and hardships, our blessings and privileges… we grow in gratitude, the wellspring of true generosity.
