Our Donors

Are Amazing

The Community Kitchen is funded by donations from local charitable foundations, civic organizations, churches, and caring individuals. Contributions to the Kitchen are tax-deductible.

Each year the Community Kitchen submits grant applications to several funding organizations, including the United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties, Empty Bowls of Monongalia County, the Perry Posey Emergency Food Fund, the Truist West Virginia Foundation, the Hazel Ruby McQuain Charitable Trust, the John Matthew Gay Brown Family Foundation, the George Hott Memorial Foundation, the Weldon Family Foundation, Your Community Foundation, the Milan Puskar Foundation, The Women's Giving Circle of North Central West Virginia, the Nieman Memorial Foundation, and prior to its closing the Charles R. Nailler Foundation.

The Morgantown community donates venison, beef, and vegetables grown in their gardens to the Kitchen.

And Then The Stove Dies...

With a bungee cord holding on one oven door and a pilot light that would go out mid-service, the heart of the Community Kitchen finally gave out.

Through contacts and assistance from Your Community Foundation, the Milan Puskar Foundation, and the United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties potential donors were identified. Phillip Shuman, Louis and Mabel Tanner Community Fund at YCF, and Apex Physical Therapy donated necessary funds to enable us to purchase a new 10 burner, double oven commercial stove.

 

We are ready for another 40 years of service.
