Hey There Readers, I Hope You Are Enjoying The New Year !! Today’s Post Comes To Us From Monroe County, Indiana. Thats Right, There’s An Organization Called The Community Kitchen of Monroe County And The Efforts They Have Displayed Are Outstanding. They Are A Multi-Tiered Organization Focusing On The Elimination Of Hunger In Their Community. I Would Like To Personally Congratulate Their Organization On Reaching Several Milestones This Year When It Came To Total Meals Served. Way To Go !!! They Are Not Only Very Involved In The Hunger Elimination Project, But They Also Host A Wide Range Of Events Throughout The Year. So If You’re In The Area And Have A Few Hours To Lend A HAnd, Stop On By. Feel Free To Give Them A Ring At (812) 332-0999.

“At Community Kitchen our mission is to work, alone and in collaboration with others, to eliminate hunger in Monroe County and surrounding areas through direct service, education and advocacy. Our philosophy states that Community Kitchen provides free nutritious meals, nutrition education, referrals to other agencies, and a clean, comfortable social environment for patrons, staff and volunteers. Through daily operations and educational outreach, Community Kitchen works to educate the public about the extent of hunger in Monroe County, explain probable causes of hunger, and provide ways to respond to hunger needs. The agency’s ultimate goal is for individuals to achieve regular access to an adequate diet through normal means. A soup kitchen is not considered “normal” means, but rather a “safety net” for people who have not yet achieved food security on their own”. – From Their Website – http://www.monroecommunitykitchen.com
