Bracken's Kitchen

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 40 people are interested

9am-1pm Monday - Friday

Before the Covid 19 pandemic, our kitchen was preparing about 7,000 meals a week which we were so proud of. Now we are preparing around 30,000 meals a week and hope to continue to grow that number this year.

We need your help packaging, prepping fruits, veggies, meats, and lots of other tasks around the kitchen! With the mass amounts of meals being prepared daily, we need as many hands on deck as we can get to help ensure we continue to meet the needs in our community!

‚ÄčNote: No need for professional chefs here! Simple dicing, chopping, cleaning, and prep is all we need. Avid learners will flourish in the kitchen!

Mission Statement

Through food recovery, culinary training and our community feeding program we are committed to recovering, re-purposing and restoring both food and lives.


You can help us "feed the need" in a variety of ways. YOUR TIME Nothing says you care quite like giving someone your time and attention. Come out and help us serve at a variety of compassionate feeding events. Build your own "volunteer tribe" and bring them all out Organize a Donation Drive... while we prefer fresh food only, high quality organic canned items are accepted. Other items of need include disposable serving supplies, cleaning supplies and office supplies Become an advocate and help us raise awareness at your work, school, church or social media circles. YOUR TALENT Are you skilled or talented? If so we can put it to good use. Can you repair a truck, fix a computer, build a website? Do you have marketing or PR skills? Do you like to cook? Are you good with numbers & accounting? Are you creative or like to write? In short we are running a business, a nonprofit, yet still a business and our needs are varied and long. We would love to engage you and your skill. YOUR TREASURE For where your treasure is, there will be your heart also and nothing shows you care quite like sharing your treasure. Donate to Bracken’s Kitchen. A dollar will provide the food for dinner for 2 people. Invite a friend to support us. Imagine the good we can do if everyone in your circle of friends just gave a dollar. Corral your friends to adopt and sponsor a dinner service.
