|Our mission||To help alleviate hunger in our community by serving our guests in an environment of respect, care and hospitality. We call the people we serve our guests, because we want them to feel welcomed and to maintain their dignity during what is a trying time in their lives.|
|Ways to help|
In the Kitchen
Prepare a meal, help serve the meal and assist with the cleanup.
In the Pantry
You can also assist guests in picking out their groceries in our Walnut Hills Pantry.
We always need help with office tasks such as stuffing or labeling envelopes, pantry cleaning or organization, or painting.
Creative & Fundraising
We would love help from individuals or groups skilled in marketing, graphic design, fundraising, or web design.
|How you help||We have many different opportunities for volunteers to get involved. You can help prepare, serve, and clean up meals in our kitchens in Walnut Hills and Over the Rhine. You can also assist guests in picking out their groceries in our Walnut Hills Pantry. We are also in need of administrative and maintenance help.|
|About us||Queen City Kitchen was founded as the Over-the-Rhine Kitchen in 1976 by Father Thomas Bokenkotter and his colleagues. Fr. Bokenkotter had visited Dorothy Day’s House of Hospitality in New York City and realized Cincinnati needed a kitchen to provide a meal without obligatory religious service for the 80 percent of the 10,000 residents in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood living in poverty. Today, Queen City Kitchen's mission is to serve all Cincinnati neighbors.|
