Community Kitchen

The Community Kitchen is a state-of-the-art production facility that provides meals for thousands of vulnerable children, seniors and homebound neighbors in Central Virginia. Built in 2007 in a collaborative effort by the Central Virginia Food Bank and Meals on Wheels Serving Central Virginia, the bright, bustling and colorful Community Kitchen encompasses all the sights, sounds, tastes, textures and smells of meals being planned and executed with skill.

Each day our team of culinary professionals, along with an army of committed volunteers, create dishes that are both nutritious and appealing. The end results are thousands of healthy, delicious meals for neighbors in need who cannot provide or prepare them for themselves.

This program is important because several of the kids who come wouldn't normally have a meal prepared for breakfast and lunch. This meal is the only meal that some of the children will receive.
