Thelma’s Kitchen is the first donate-what-you-can cafe in Kansas City.

Thelma’s Kitchen is a Healthy Communities Initiative of Reconciliation Services. The mission of Reconciliation Services is to cultivate a community seeking reconciliation to transform Troost from a dividing line to a gathering place, revealing the strength of all. Thelma’s Kitchen is here to meet very real needs in our area for affordable food access and to gather people together for vibrant community life. When we serve together and sit and share a meal together, we begin to understand what it means to be community. Thelma’s Kitchen is a gathering place, where everyone is welcome!


Watch, listen and read about what's happening at Thelma's Kitchen and in our community. 

We would like to introduce you to Thelma and tell you a little bit about how Thelma's Kitchen came to be.
