Inter-Faith Council for Social Service


Community Kitchen

The Community Kitchen in Carrboro prepares hot meals for anyone who is hungry every day of the year, as well as for people living at Community House and HomeStart shelters in Chapel Hill.

Volunteers from faith congregations, businesses, neighborhoods, civic groups, and local employers work alongside staff to prepare, serve, and clean up. Nearly all of the food that is served is donated by local restaurants, campus groups, farmers, and more. IFC partners with Farmer Foodshare and other local groups to provide fresh, locally-grown produce. Volunteers also help pick up, receive, sort and store food donations. Staff members pictured (l ro r) Danielle, Erika, and Lance look forward to seeing you at the Kitchen!
