About Women & Children's Free Restaurant & Community Kitchen

Location:

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

Mission Statement

Women & Children’s Free Restaurant & Community Kitchen (WCFR) provides 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

We planned to serve 100,000 meals in 2020, but the needs of our community quickly changed at the onset of the pandemic. We have served over two million meals through curbside services and partnerships with other nonprofit organizations since 2020. We help our community with dignity and compassion guided by the belief that everyone deserves good nutrition.

Women & Children's Free Restaurant & Community Kitchen (WCFR) offers two core programs. Meal and Grocery Distribution provides free nutritious scratch-made meals, produce, dairy, proteins, and non-perishable items through contact-less curbside distribution. Nutrition-to-Go (NTG) distributes free, nutritious food meals with other community organizations. 75% of our NTG meals are consumed at homeless shelters, COVID isolation units, and housing programs.
