Thelma’s Kitchen relies on volunteer assistance to provide meals to our community and food-insecure neighbors. Partner with us today!

We ask all volunteers to come to Central Presbyterian Church (3501 Campbell, Kansas City, MO 64109) to serve, as our main building at 3101 Troost undergoes renovation.
