Since the Elmira Community Kitchen first opened its doors in 1981, kind and caring volunteers from local faith communities and organizations have prepared nourishing meals and offered a warm welcome to thousands of neighbors-in-need of all ages each year.
Our guests include families with children, low-wage working people, homeless persons, elders, persons with disabilities. We have learned over the years that nutritious food and companionship at the table are equally important to human well-being and we offer both.
Our doors remain open because you help us. We are deeply grateful! If you would like to make a secure donation online, click here. If you would prefer to mail your donation, please make checks payable to Elmira Community Kitchen and mail to Catholic Charities, 215 E. Church St, Elmira, NY 14901. Thank you for helping our neighbors in need!
Treu Office Supply & Furniture (110 Lake St, Elmira) offers a way to help local neighbors-in-need. Treu’s has established a cartridge recycling project.
Empty cartridges from both home and office printers can be dropped off at Treu’s. The cartridges are picked up by a recycler and refilled for resale. The recycler pays a small fee for each cartridge and Treu’s donates these funds (plus a matching amount they contribute!) to the Elmira Community Kitchen. Empty cartridges help fill plates at the Elmira Community Kitchen!
