Announcement Date: January 1, 1982
It all started here. Local volunteers, led by Do Bacharach and others, started feeding the individuals who were in town and homeless. From an early start, the Kitchen moved to the Save the Children offices. As most shelters have their main meal at noon, Save The Children offered their conference room, but only after business hours, so the Community Kitchen offered their meal at 5 pm. To this day, hundreds of volunteers, including Do Bacharach, serve a meal at Gillespie Center every day, at 5 pm.
