Unity Kitchen – Change is Coming!

What would it look like if we did away with lines at the Urban Mission?

If we operated our Unity Kitchen like a restaurant instead of a soup kitchen?

If guests sat at individual tables covered in freshly ironed tablecloths?

If we used real plates instead of trays? Real silverware instead of plastic?


These are some of the questions we’ve been asking ourselves lately as we seek to provide dignified experiences to our neighbors when they visit the Urban Mission.

This summer, we’ll be reimagining our Unity Kitchen and invite you to help us in this process.


The following list provides some of our most current and pressing needs to make this dream a reality.

Current Needs:

  • Silverware (matching and non matching)
  • Black tablecloths (4, 6, and 8 ft.)
  • White tablecloths (4, 6, and 8 ft.)
  • Bar stools
  • Food trays
  • Financial donations to purchase Unity Kitchen aprons, chef’s jackets
  • Clipboards of all sizes
  • And… volunteers!

If you’d like to find out more, please call us at 740.282.8010.
