Kansas City Community Kitchen has been serving lunch in downtown Kansas City for more than 30 years. Anyone is welcome to come and eat food prepared by our staff & culinary trainees. We serve Monday - Friday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

In spring 2016 we changed from a cafeteria style service to a restaurant style service. Volunteers serve as the "front of house" staff - hosts, wait staff, bussers, etc. so that guests truly experience "dining with dignity." We've made lots of news about this - you may have even seen us on Upworthy, Huffington Post or NBC Nightly News!

Volunteers are required to complete a release/waiver form, wear certain clothing, and be at least 14 years old (maybe a little younger with proper supervision and advanced notice). More details are available on our website at or just reply to this listing and we'll get you started!

No experience necessary. Shifts available every Monday - Friday (even holidays) with choice of full shift from 10:30-2:30 or a short shift until 12 pm (you can stay later if you like).
