The Community Kitchen and Community Canteen is a food service program providing complimentary box lunches to in-need residents, families, and health care workers in Chicago. Currently, we provide 2,000 meals a week to local senior housing complexes, food pantries, hospital workers, and residents of Chicago. The Community Kitchen + Canteen provides work to chefs, cooks, and front-of-house hospitality workers who have lost their businesses or full time / part-time employment due to the pandemic. We source proteins, produce and baked goods from local farms and bakeries whenever possible.
The Community Kitchen uses kitchens at Marz Community Brewing, Kimski, DMen Tap, and Wherewithall to produce these healthy and delicious meals.
