Community Kitchens of Birmingham

5712 1st Avenue North
Birmingham, AL - 35212

Those we serve come from a variety of backgrounds. Generally we help children, the unemployed, homeless, the working poor, the disabled, families on welfare, veterans and the elderly whose fixed income is too small. Some of our guests have income. About 25% of our guests are employed part-time or on a temporary basis, but still cannot meet their basic needs. Eating at Community Kitchens allows them to use their money for rent, gas, utilities and other necessities that help keep them from becoming homeless. 30 50% of our guests are homeless. The homeless, who often sleep outside or in shelters, need a nutritious meal at least once a day. For 60% of our guests this is the only hot meal they will get all day and for 30% it is the only meal of any kind! Those who eat with Community Kitchens can also receive referrals to other community agencies that can assist with housing and other needs.
