  • Our Volunteers and Collaborators

    The Friendly Kitchen could not exist without the involvement of volunteers and collaborators from the greater Concord NH community.

    The Friendly Kitchen is run by 50 volunteer groups from churches, service and civic organizations, and local businesses who plan the menus, prepare, cook and serve the food, and wash the dishes.

    Most food served is donated from individuals, local grocery stores, restaurants, and organizations such as the Boy Scouts and the Postal Letter Carriers, who hold food drives on behalf of The Friendly Kitchen.

    We also receive donations from the NH Food Bank, the Capital Regional Food Program, and the Community Action Program.

Ed Reilly Subaru’s Share the Love 2017

For the 4th year in a row we have received a Major Gift from Ed Reilly Subaru's Share the Love Event.

The Friendly Kitchen is know for employing an army of volunteers who prepare and serve our meals. It's been a great way to involve the community and to keep our costs low. We pride ourselves on being a very frugal organization.

But we also have needs that can't be met by volunteers, like paying for the basic operations of running the Kitchen: lights, heat, hot water (lots of it), insurance, equipment repair, etc. etc. So we have to fund raise which is never an organization's favorite thing to do. And that is where financial support like this gift are vitally important.

Our sincere thanks to Ed Reilly and his dealership and Subaru. ​

Thank you to b.good in Concord!
