In 2013, 33,022 breakfasts, 154,214 lunches, and 37,815 dinners were provided to those in need through Potter’s House Community Kitchen.
North Carolina ranks fifth in the nation for hunger, with Guilford County ranking fourth for metropolitan areas. This translates to one in five adults and one in four children not having adequate access to food. Given the persistence of continued high unemployment rates, reduced government benefits and rising food costs, many individuals are unable to pay all of their bills – having to choose between shelter, food, or utilities. Potter’s House Community Kitchen helps these individuals make ends meet by providing a free, well-balanced, nutritious meal each day to those in need. The meal is served between 10:30 A.M. and 12:30 P.M. For many in our community, this may be the only nutritious meal they receive that day. Additionally, breakfast and dinner are provided to those individuals staying in Weaver House Night Shelter.
Volunteers are needed once a week on weekdays or once a month on weekends from 9 A.M. to 1 P.M. to set up, cook, serve, and clean. This gives a sense of community and fellowship between the guests and volunteers.
