Phoenix Community Kitchen celebrates 10 years of free dinners

PHOENIX, Ore.– Local volunteers celebrated a decade of free meals for the community with a spaghetti dinner on Thursday evening, marking the start of the Phoenix community’s first meal.

Ten years ago, the Phoenix Community Kitchen started organizing dinners twice a month for anyone wishing to attend. Held in the first Presbyterian church near downtown Phoenix, a variety of dinners were served. From Italian to Asian, from stews to salads, the menu of what to cook each meal is full of options.

According to Carolyna Marshall, voluntary kitchen coordinator, on average around 200 people come to events to enjoy a homemade meal. But it is beyond food that means more.

“Finding the community in a more intimate way because not many of us sit and dine with your community and we do it,” said Marshall. “We sit with each other and get to know each other a little more intimately. Is fantastic.”

The community kitchen believes that this event can be brought to any city to help bring their communities together. The Marshal hopes that other events like this will be adopted in other areas to help offer an outlet to the community.

The kitchen is always looking for new volunteers and donations to help pay for supplies. If you wish to donate or learn about volunteering, you can call Marshall on 541-543-6874 and let her know how you would like to help.
