Shelbourne Community Kitchen is seeking donations to help provide more food for people in need as the Covid pandemic continues.
FOR A LIMITED TIME, YOUR DONATION WILL BE MATCHED BY A GENEROUS DONOR!
We provide FRESH & HEALTHY food to 650 adults and 90 children through our Pantry Program.
The Shelbourne Community Kitchen's (The Kitchen) latest fundraising effort has been given a huge boost by a generous donor who wishes to remain anonymous. The donor has offered to match any donations up to $20,000.
This generous offer could not have come at a better time as the need for our programs has more than doubled due to COVID. Amidst the pandemic, our organization also had to renovate and move to a new, larger location. We are so grateful for donors who step up at times like this.
Our organization currently has over 1,100 members and 830 participants who access programs, and we have faced numerous challenges over the past year. We are so proud of how our team pivoted in 2020. We never missed a day of service and went above and beyond to keep healthy food accessible even as our numbers doubled. Even amidst the facility transition, our team has distributed fresh produce from our gardens as well as grocery vouchers.
Growing need, coupled along with the expense of renovating and moving to a larger space has resulted in the need for additional funding. We hope the campaign will raise enough funding to meet the growing need for support and help with the final push to reopen in our new facility, expected in early September. The new location is in Unit 101, 3787 Cedar Hill Road, just a few blocks from the old location.
