Our Community Kitchen (OCK) is a place where everyone is welcome and everyone is fed. Neighbors from across the street or across town, new friends, families, those in need of support and those with support to offer come together where people love to gather – in the kitchen, around the table.
Twice a week, OCK serves breakfast at Ascension Episcopal Church in Stillwater. There is no cost for the breakfasts served at OCK. Those that enjoy a healthy breakfast are asked to make a minimum donation and if they can afford more, donate for someone who can’t.
Breakfast is served Tuesday and Thursday from 8 to 10 a.m. Our menu changes weekly. Check our website: ourcommunityitchen.org for what’s cooking. OCK also has volunteer opportunities for youths and adults. If interested, contact us at OurCommnityKitchenStillwater@gmail.com. Our Community Kitchen is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization located at 214 3rd St. N., Stillwater, MN.
