I would like to give a big thank you to Community Servings. I appreciate what they stand for and what they do for the community.

I truly believe it’s my calling. I enjoy going to work all the time. The food that I’m preparing is high-end, and it’s good.

I want to thank you for the opportunity you all have given me volunteering at Community Servings. It has truly been an eye-opening experience for me and it has been uplifting to be a part of an organization that does so much good for people. There are not enough of you in the world.

Volunteer

In Their Words

The process of making a meal: the thawing, cooking, and standing over the oven can be so tiring. The meals are truly able to lift stress off of my daily life.

Client with cancer & COPD

This place has picked me up, polished me off, and I’m good to go.

Teaching Kitchen trainee, at graduation

In Their Words

The meals are fantastic and my family members really appreciate it, knowing that I’m eating well. I’m feeling really good and the meals are satisfying, too.

We are able to look forward to having a variety of good meals every day, from wild rice to homemade soups to fresh, in-season vegetables like butternut squash and asparagus.

Client with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

In Their Words

These past months we became more than friends, we became family. I’m glad to have met all of you at Community Servings. You gave me another chance.

Teaching Kitchen trainee, at graduation

In Their Words

Not only does Community Servings provide my grandmother with meals, I believe they provide her with some independence knowing she can warm up a meal herself and not depend on anyone to do it for her – it means more than you can imagine.

Client's granddaughter

In Their Words

Emotionally, the agency was there for me as well. I looked forward to the delivery drivers coming and taking the time to talk to me. Even when I was weak from my treatments, they would always brighten my day by offering words of encouragement.

Client with breast cancer

In Their Words

Since I’m diabetic, the meals really help me with portion sizes. I’m not eating too much, and I eat the right desserts. I’m losing weight too!

Single mom with HIV & Type 2 Diabetes

In Their Words

Thank you, again, for having such a wonderful program. I really believe that it is this type of vocational training that really can help someone sustain recovery and make the transition from active addiction to a life in recovery. The confidence, skills, responsibility and new beginning that comes through this process is priceless.

Access to Recovery coordinator, a Teaching Kitchen referral partner

In Their Words

Sometimes during my treatments, I wouldn’t even be able to get up. I wasn’t sure how my girls were going to eat. I was going through intense treatments of radiation and I didn’t even have the energy to take my children to school.

Single mom with breast cancer

In Their Words

This has been a wonderful, life-changing experience for me. This will put me back in the right place to get me back on my feet.

Teaching Kitchen trainee

In Their Words

I’m trying to change my diet. I’m pre-diabetic and am concerned with my sugar levels. I’ve spoken with the nutrition department and they informed me of things that I did not know before. I learned that vegetables have sugar and which ones would be healthiest for me to eat.

Client with HIV, Hepatitis C, and chronic pain

In Their Words

Before the meals, I didn’t have a way to make ends meet. I was so focused on my kids getting everything that they needed, that I wasn’t taking care of myself.

Single mom with HIV

In Their Words

I would like to thank Community Servings for the opportunity they gave to me to follow my passion. I’m so grateful for all the wonderful teachers who made me feel more confident.

Teaching Kitchen trainee, at graduation

In Their Words

Thank you so much for your healthy, nourishing food.  I deeply appreciate it.

Client with severe autoimmune disease who lives alone

In Their Words

This time last year, I was in a pretty bad place emotionally. I don’t know what I’d be doing if I wasn’t here, if I didn’t get into the Teaching Kitchen program. I just know leaving here now I’ve got ten more friends and a whole army of people here helping me out, and I just want to say thank you.

Teaching Kitchen trainee, at graduation

In Their Words

Community Servings and their programs truly shine a light on humanity. There is some good in the world and I believe that Community Servings is the perfect example of this good.

Client with cancer

In Their Words

I learned a lot of things, like how to be patient – patient with food, patient with people.

Teaching Kitchen trainee, at graduation

In Their Words

When I started, I started feeling really good about myself. I was helping people who couldn’t help themselves. It gave me confidence…Not everything I did in my life (before) was positive.

Teaching Kitchen graduate who works at The Kirkland Tap & Trotter

In Their Words

I receive a diabetic, low vitamin K diet. Because I can’t cook like I used to, the meals help me manage my nutritional needs and focus on taking care of myself.

Client with diabetes

In Their Words

The meals from Community Servings act as a safety net in my life. It warms my heart to have someone who doesn’t even know you do something so kind.

Client with several chronic illnesses

In Their Words

It was an honor, experiencing different ways to cook and I enjoyed being with the teachers in the kitchen, showing us how to cook. As I graduate from the Teaching Kitchen program, I’ve been to a couple of interviews for food prep and I’m hoping to work in a restaurant. That’s where I see myself working.

Teaching Kitchen trainee, at graduation

In Their Words

My kids and I are so thankful and think of you every time we sit down to eat.

Single mom with multiple chronic illnesses

In Their Words

My grandmother, who is 87-years-old, receives food weekly from your service. As I was helping her put away the meals that were delivered to her, she expressed how very nice everyone is that delivers the meals to her. She raved about how very generous the program has been for her.

Client's granddaughter

In Their Words

I already knew Community Servings because when I was healthy and working, I bought pies every year. But now as a client, the organization has been fantastic for me. It has really saved the day many times when I was ill.

Client with several chronic illnesses

In Their Words

If not for the Teaching Kitchen, I would probably be at home on the couch or in jail.

Teaching Kitchen trainee

We believe in the astonishing power of food.

Food is sustenance. Everything we have ever achieved
was made possible by food.

Food is nourishment. It fills our stomachs, fuels our bodies, and wraps us in its warm embrace.

Food is community.
For few things in life compare to the simple pleasure of breaking bread with family or friends.

Food is powerful medicine. It has the ability to heal not just
the sick, but the loved ones that care for them.

Food is an agent of change. It has the power to engage world leaders,
big business and change the way America feeds the sick.

Let us then celebrate the many powers of food.

Community Servings.
Food heals.
