The Beginnings of the Love Kitchen In 1984, Helen Ashe and her twin sister, Ellen Turner started to dream about a program to serve the needy in Knoxville. The sisters developed the concept of the Love Kitchen from the teachings of their parents and their religion.
The Beginnings of the Love Kitchen Contd In February 1986, their dream came true in the basement of a small church. On their first day, they served 22 meals. Today, the Love Kitchen serves over 2,000 meals each week and 80% are delivered to homebound recipients. In 2001, the Love Kitchen opened the Love Kitchen Community Center. This center offers training classes and a safe haven for Knoxvilles underprivileged children.
Our Mission The Love Kitchen is a non-profit organization provides meals, clothing and emergency food packages to those in need. Whether people are unemployed, homeless or homebound, the Love Kitchen doesn't turn anyone away. The incredible part is that no one at the Love Kitchen is getting paid.
The Love at the Love Kitchen At the Love Kitchen, they have many volunteers that prepare, serve and deliver meals, and clean up and give out a few hugs. One volunteer stated, It's a tremendous blessing to volunteer here - being able to be a blessing to others as the Lord blesses me.
The Love Kitchen sisters, Helen and Ellen, have had many blessings bestowed upon them for their wonderful works with the needy in Knoxville.
