Ashland Community Kitchen History:
In the early 80’s, during a time of economic downturn in the Ashland area, concerned citizens discussed ways to feed people who were unable to afford a hot meal. Several local church women were the driving force in addressing the problem. Their vision was a soup kitchen.
With the help and support of the United Ministries Association (now Ashland Area Ministerial Association) and downtown churches, the dream became a reality. The Ashland Community Kitchen began serving soup and sandwiches June 3, 1983, in the parish hall of Calvary Episcopal Church.
The kitchen first opened two days a week, serving approximately 40 people a day. Less than three months later, the growing need prompted the kitchen to expand to three days a week. The current five-day-a-week schedule began in 1991.
