Donate To A Great Cause


Why You Should Give...

By giving to the Chattanooga Community Kitchen, you become a partner in our work of serving the homeless, hungry and less fortunate in our area.  Truly a home-grown organization, the Chattanooga Community Kitchen was founded by seven downtown churches in 1982.  Since then we have been working to make sure that “Help from the Heart of the City” is much more than just a slogan.  We’ve been working to meet needs.

People in Chattanooga need the Community Kitchen, and we need you!  Please consider making a General Donation.  This is the easiest way to support our work.
