• We completed building our new home on December 27, 2012 with the help of a construction loan, which we would like to pay off and eliminate monthly mortgage expenses. We also have ongoing operational expenses (such as heat, water, sewer, and very limited salaries). Thank you for your help!


    If you prefer to make your donation by check, please make it out to The Friendly Kitchen and mail to:

    Thank you!

  • 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.
