Welcome, beautiful Open Kitchen Friends,
to our 7th Annual Food Drive –
Reimagined!

Your participation will help us continue serving our weekly meal – to go, of course, until we can gather safely around the table (and in front of QFC) again. Thank you for your support and for “meeting us at the door” – however you can!

As many of our Redmond neighbors struggle in these uncertain times, Open Kitchen is serving more and more meals each week, meeting the need as it arrives at our doorstep. Our nearly empty pantry reminds us that the season of our annual food drive is upon us.

We humbly ask for your support as we try to refill our pantry with a year’s supply of goods amidst a global pandemic. This ask is huge, but we will do it! Our Open Kitchen community is mighty and strong and invites all people, local and global, to become a part of our mission to build community in spite of the masks that separate us, to provide a warm to-go meal, and to ensure no one leaves hungry.

IN-PERSON DONATION


How lovely it will be to see your smiling eyes! Shop from our list of needed items (shown to the right & downloadable below), then drive through the Redmond United Methodist Church parking lot between 10am – 3pm on Saturday, October 17; we will be there, in our cheerful masks, ready to accept your donation and thank you with a yummy Open Kitchen cookie!
