The Community Kitchen Inc., Serving the Monadnock Region since 1983
Volunteering at The Community Kitchen is easy.
  Volunteer Opportunities

We are very fortunate to have many dedicated volunteers and always look forward to having new volunteers join us. If you call and we are not able to schedule you right away, please don’t be discouraged, we typically book at least a month ahead.

Take a moment to think about your neighbors... Many of us take food and daily necessities for granted, but for some it’s not that simple. The holidays are a time to show how much you care, and what better time to start than now.

  Make a donation, join a food drive, deliver food boxes, volunteer your time... Individuals, families, work groups and civic organizations are encouraged to reserve time to help make a difference this year by calling (603) 352-3200.
  We can answer your questions, schedule volunteer time and provide an informational tour of our facility. Whatever you can give, we are genuinely appreciative of your efforts. Volunteering can change your life. After you’ve seen TCK’s operations, we’re sure you’ll agree.
  “It was my pleasure to experience the outstanding service provided by The Community Kitchen. I had the opportunity to serve dinner last Thursday and to see first hand the process of preparing and serving a great meal. After serving was over we all completely cleaned the facility to be ready for the next meal. It's quite a process and a great service to the community.” Joe Walier, Walier Chevrolet
