Scroll Down for Updates on the New SOS Community Kitchen!
The SOS Community Kitchen is one of a kind because it's not an ordinary community kitchen. This program is geared towards providing after school programs and daycare centers with low-income children with nutritious meals and snacks by utilizing over 40,000 pounds of fresh produce each month. With our community kitchen being able to supply these nutritious meals to children, we are not only relieving hunger but increasing the quality of life for children in our community. Currently, our program is distributing meals to the Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, Bahama Music Festival and Sunbeam Christian School, with the initiative to add in more sites for both children and the elderly in the county.

NEW SOS Community Kitchen Under Construction
The new SOS Community Kitchen currently under construction is expected to be complete June of 2017. It comes to no surprise why this project has been supported by many individuals and businesses in the community providing labor, equipment, and time at no cost, such as the Charley Toppino & Sons, the Spottswoods, KeyStar Inc., Sunbelt Rentals, and much more!
This Community Kitchen is expected to provide + 1,000 meals per day that will be delivered to other sites in Monroe County stretching from Key West to Key Largo. These sites such as the Boys and Girls Club, Childcare Centers, and Senior Centers have individuals that are low-income and require the additional food security in order to thrive in Monroe County. With 49% of the citizens in Monroe struggling financially, the SOS Community Kitchen is able to supplement their dietary needs and ease strain on the families living in the County.
