Christ Kitchen began in 1998 and is a Christ-centered ministry providing work, job-training, Bible study, discipleship, support, and fellowship for women living in poverty in Spokane. Through the production and sales of gourmet dried food products and full-service catering services, this ministry enables women to learn to work through one of our six job training matrixes, enabling them to become employable, and to support themselves and their families without reliance on government programs or destructive relationships.
The goal of Christ Kitchen is to offer a nurturing, healthy, caring environment where women learn work skills and life skills and meet relational needs. It provides a community within which to grow, learn, give, and be supported.
While the incentive to earn money brings women to Christ Kitchen, it is the spiritual and emotional care that sustains them while they learn how to become employable and self-sufficient. Christ Kitchen’s call is to help women trapped in poverty to develop, renew, and heal, and maintain spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health.
