Community Kitchen staff and volunteers will serve Christmas meals to people in need from 3-6 p.m Dec. 25 at 1515 S. Rogers St. 

All volunteer shifts for Christmas Day are full, but Community Kitchen welcomes any food donations or financial contributions at their facility.   

Community Kitchen works to eliminate hunger in Monroe County and surrounding areas. The kitchen has been providing Christmas meals for more than 30 years, according to a press release. 

Staff and volunteers will serve ham, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, rolls and a variety of desserts, according to the release. 

In partnership with the Hoosier Hills Food Bank, Community Kitchen will also distribute bags of groceries to those in attendance, according to the release.

Community Kitchen Express, located at 1100 W. 11th St., will also offer carry-out meals.

The kitchen will prepare over 200 meals for homebound individuals. Area 10 Agency on Aging and Positive Link will distribute the meals, according to the release. 

Last Christmas, Community Kitchen distributed over 1,500 meals, and the kitchen anticipates a similar need this year, according to the release.
