Thelma's Kitchen Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What happened to the walk-up window?
A: We are currently renovating our building at 31st and Troost. During this renovation, we are distributing Box Lunches with the help of some special community partners who are also working to improve health and well-being in the community. Amethyst Place, The Grooming Project, Journey to New Life, Inc., Community LINC, Uzazi Village, and Donnelly College are offering Thelma's Box Lunches as a resource to the neighbors they serve. And, each neighbor coming to Reconciliation Services for services can also receive a Box Lunch.

A: Online orders can be placed for delivery Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
