JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WAVE) - The Community Kitchen in Jeffersonville celebrated 30 years of service Thursday night.
The kitchen’s very first meal was served on January 4th, 1989. There were only three people there.
Decades later, the Community Kitchen has served hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of hot meals to people in need.
“We serve between 175 to 200 people a day,” Stan Moore, President of the Community Kitchen board, said, “and it’s really an opportunity to say thank you to the community and the people that have given to us over the years.”
Most of the monetary donations made to the Community Kitchen go towards food or renovations to help make the space more accessible to those in need.
