Our Programs

Food Recovery

Every year Tons of viable catered, often, gourmet food is thrown into the trash. Caterers, Convention Hall, Hotels, Convenience Stores, Colleges, and others simply waste an incredible resource that could bring the numbers of food insecure in Music City down dramatically.

Food Distribution

In three years, working part-time, CKO has rescued over 30 tons of viable food and served over 110,000 meals to our Distribution Network of Ministry and Community Outreach partners that provide a wide range of public services ranging from substance abuse, speech and education and job training, the Homeless, as well as trafficked and displaced children to name a few. It is our honor to be able to support the people in these communities of need doing these vital services every day.

Community Care

Our goal is to establish an unfettered access to service by collecting food in neighborhoods of need. This will lower food insecurity and create a community of collaboration.

Help CKO on the go

About Care Kitchen Outreach

Hunger has number one and it’s YOU!

 Hunger has a number, and the number is ONE. If we can lift one child out of food insecurity today, we have succeeded. Join us in the creation of a pragmatic, attainable, and sustainable model to combat food insecurity in Nashville – Hunger has another number ONE: every church (regardless of denomination), every well-intention-ed  good Samaritan, college and high school student, volunteers from every race, color, and creed. Join Care Kitchen Outreach in creating a model that will come alongside the many food organizations working hard to address food insecurity in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. Give hope and help to the hundreds of thousands of men, woman, and children that are going hungry daily.
