Our Vision:

To be a center of hope and compassion, ensuring that no one in our community suffers the fear and distress of food insecurity.

Our Mission:

To serve nutritious meals to those in need in a safe, welcoming place.

We encourage you to learn more about this project, donate or volunteer.

Data shows that McKinney, our county seat, is the epicenter of food insecurity in our county.

Community Garden Kitchen has teamed with Holy Family School of McKinney to design a multi-use facility which will be shared by the school and CGK as a place to prepare and serve meals. The building will also be home to community meetings and instructional classes in food preparation, nutrition and health.

Located near McKinney's historic downtown, the kitchen will provide for the growing needs of the school children as well as anyone who needs a meal and a sense of community.
