Care Kitchen Outreach

We are looking for volunteers to help rescue and redistribute food weekly. Whether you have an hour a week or you want to be on a weekly rotation, having volunteers will increase the amount of food we can receive and put back into our ever-growing food distribution network.

Urgent NEEDS

Care Kitchen Outreach is a non-profit food rescue and redistribution kitchen delivering viable food resources to those in need in Nashville and Middle Tennessee, to the glory of GOD.

Farm fresh produce from Cul2vate

As CKO moves into a new facility, we will be taking donations of refrigeration, kitchen appliances, cutlery, and any food service supplies. We will also be in need of more vehicles to enhance our capability to rescue more food.

Make your tax-deductible donations to the CKO above. Thank you!

Our Mission

Connecting grocers

CKO is a food rescue and redistribution kitchen. We have redistributed 47,000 meals of viable gourmet food in just over a year and a half. CKO is filming web-cast healthy food demonstrations to educate people on the fun and ease of preparing viable healthy meals. CKO is networking grocers and growers in the Nashville area to deliver farm fresh produce with our partners at Cul2vate.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” Matthew 25:35
