About Community Garden Kitchen of Collin County
The Community Garden Kitchen is a 4,800 square foot free-standing building sharing the campus of Holy Family School. The land for the facility has been provided by the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas.
Community Garden Kitchen of Collin County, Inc. (CGK) began in 2014, blossoming from a discussion among friends seated at a kitchen table about hunger in the community. Discovering there was no place in Collin County that served freshly prepared, healthy meals on a daily basis, the group decided to build a permanent place to feed those in need.
Today, Community Garden Kitchen is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation with the goal to eliminate hunger in our community.
These friends and others who’ve joined this endeavor believe that no one residing in Collin County, Texas should be food insecure. Today, over 15% of our county’s residents who live below the poverty line struggle to have enough food to sustain healthy, productive lives. Data shows that McKinney, our county seat, is the epicenter of food insecurity in our county.
Community Garden Kitchen has designed a multi-use facility as a place to prepare and serve meals in a restaurant like setting.
The Episcopal Diocese, which has supported the school from its inception, has leased CGK the land for the building.
The Globe Life Garden at the Kitchen located on the campus is being built so visitors to the kitchen can enjoy learning, growing, and eating the fresh fruits and vegetables they are able to produce.
We hope that you will join us in making Collin County a place where no child or adult ever goes hungry again.
