Our Story

How we change lives

It Started with an Idea, and a Truck

In October 2019 Freedom Kitchen began as a pilot outreach project in Lower Sackville through Knox United Church, providing free meals to those in need with the main target being youth. 

We begin serving free meals out of a food truck on Monday nights in the Acadia Hall parking lot.

COVID-19

In April 2020, the ​Freedom Kitchen project was extended to accomodate the needs of those affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

 

Our services were, and are still essential to many in the community.

The New Freedom Kitchen & Closet

In May 2021, we move to the new Freedom Kitchen building at Knox United church with the help of Municipal, Provincial, and Federal Grants and the outpouring of support from the community, businesses, organizations, and many individuals.

Currently we provide free hot meals out of our Freedom Kitchen Location at Knox United Church every Monday Night. Teams of Volunteers prepare and serve meals to those in need. Other volunteers deliver meals to people in Lower Sackville & Beaver Bank for those who cannot make it to our location. We also have grocery items & supplies available throughout the week.
