About Women & Children's Free Restaurant & Community Kitchen

Location:

1408 N. Washington St., Spokane, WA 99201, US

Mission Statement

Women & Children’s Free Restaurant is a vital safety net that fills nutritional gaps for women and children in need while fostering dignity and respect, both within our restaurant and in the community.

Description

Women & Children's Free Restaurant & Community Kitchen (WCFR) serves whole foods, scratch made dinners on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 3-5:45 PM to women and children under the age of 19 years. On Fridays we offer lunch from 11:30-1:15.

WCFR is a grassroots organization that offers three programs addressing food insecurity and nutritional gaps in the Spokane community. Since 1988, WCFR has served free dinners to women and children. We also offer a meal outreach program (Nutrition to Go) in collaboration with other social service programs in the community. Our third program, Nutrition Essentials, is a nutrition education programs designed to reduce the risk of preventable diseases such as Type 2 diabetes.

An important aspect of WCFR is its emphasis on "community" for the women and children we serve. The environment is friendly, safe and dignified where diners network with one another and mothers have an opportunity to take their children out for a nutritious meal.
