Normal Operating Hours: M-F 10:30-11:45

The Community Kitchen, Inc. is a non-profit, non-denominational organization operating in downtown Morgantown, WV.  Established in 1984, our goal is to provide a nutritional lunch-time meal in a  safe, clean, uplifting environment for the hungry in the community. 

Operating Hours

The Community Kitchen, Inc. is open for lunch Monday-Friday 10:30-11:45 except for major holidays and when the weather is so bad that volunteers cannot get to the Kitchen.  We NO LONGER close  automatically when Monongalia County Schools are closed for inclement weather.  We will make every possible effort to keep the green banner (above, center) updated. 

WHo we are

We are an independent, non-denominational, non-profit organization serving free lunches Monday-Friday 10:30-11:45 except for a few holidays and  when the above banner states otherwise.
Meals are served in the fellowship hall of Trinity Episcopal Church (the Red Door Church) at the corner of Willey and Spruce Streets. The Community Kitchen, Inc. is managed by a Board of Directors composed of local community members and all financial support comes from local charitable foundations, civic organizations, churches, and individuals.

Our needs

Even with the COVID-19 virus, we continue to serve to-go lunches ever weekday. Lunches may be picked up between 10:30-11:45 at the door of the Trinity Episcopal Church.

The preparation of to-go has increased the need of paper supplies.

Monetary needs have gone up dramatically for cleaning supplies as well.

The Community Kitchen has been awarded 6 emergency grants to help us provide lunches during the COVID 19 Pandemic.  


Without these awards from the following we could not meet our mission of serving free nutritious lunches, five days per week, and to provide Weekend Meal-Supplement Bags to those in our community who are experiencing food insecurity. 


Emergency Grant Awards in 2020 were received from:

Dominion Energy  

Empty Bowls Monongalia  

United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties 

Walmart Community Grants 

Your Community Foundation, Inc. (YCF)

It's so important to help the people who have had a hard time in life. I am very fortunate to have the lifestyle that I have to help people get back on their feet.

It's great to help people that need it. We serve about 70 -110 people a day.
