Community Kitchen

His Haven’s Community Kitchen provides free, nutritious meals to underprivileged individuals and families in need. This vital service helps alleviate food insecurity and provides a dependable source of healthy meals to those facing challenging circumstances. 

We source ingredients from local food banks, farmers, and wholesalers.  We also have a network of grocery stores that kindly donate on a regular basis. Our menus focus on simple, nutritious dishes that provide balanced nutrition. We accommodate dietary restrictions to the best of our ability.

Volunteers assist with food preparation, serving, and clean up to help keep costs low.  In partnership with Pine City Methodist Church, we provide free meals for pickup or dining-in twice a month at our Southside location.  Pine City Methodist enjoys serving the community.

In addition to meals, our community kitchen provides a compassionate, welcoming environment. For many guests, it offers community and human connection. We strive to serve each person with dignity and respect.

Looking ahead, we plan to expand our service to offer more meals.  Our Southside kitchen is currently under renovations. This expanded kitchen will allow us to increase meal production and service to the homeless and food insecure in our community.  Our new kitchen will also become an integral component to our Homeless Block allowing us to provide hot meals to homeless.

Currently, the meals we deliver to the homeless are prepared at our Woodlawn Community Center.  Our Woodlawn kitchen is fully equipped and operational. We currently host special dinners and events there. Our after-school programming includes healthy meals for children.

Our Community Kitchen exemplifies our commitment to combating food insecurity through collaboration. By uniting with local partners, we maximize our ability to nourish those in need. The renovated kitchen will expand our capacity further. We look forward to serving even more of our neighbors through this essential program.
