Last year the IFC provided around 60,000 free meals to community members. Meals are free of charge and are provided to anyone who is hungry as well as to the residents of Community House and HomeStart.

Community volunteers and volunteer groups representing congregations, businesses, neighborhoods and the University provide nutritious, hot meals 365 days a year. The Kitchen Coordinator--the one paid staff member in the Community Kitchen--schedules and trains volunteers to prepare and serve meals. Nearly all of the food that is served is donated by local restaurants, food services, campus groups, farmers, congregations and businesses. The IFC partners with Farmer Foodshare and other local groups to provide fresh, locally-grown produce for the Community Kitchen.

The Community Kitchen relies heavily on volunteers to prepare and serve meals and clean up afterwards. Meal monitors provide support to volunteer groups and address client needs during the meal. Volunteers also help pick up, receive, sort and store food donations.
