The Master's Kitchen

The Master's Kitchen program serves hot, healthy, and nutritious lunches every Friday at the Bethany Center to anyone that needs one.

In response to COVID-19, these lunches are currently being served as takeout instead of dine-in meals.

People facing food insecurity deserve to eat delicious, healthy meals in a dignified space. That's what we offer.

The Master’s Kitchen serves hot, healthy, and nutritious lunches every Friday for anyone that needs one. Skillfully prepared by caring staff and volunteers, these meals have traditionally been served home-style in a dine-in area to foster caring and compassionate connections.

41.2% of families in Homewood South live in poverty; stopping service during COVID was not an option.

According to the The Pittsburgh Neighborhood Project’s Disadvantage Map, well over a third of families in Homewood South live below the poverty line (based on 2014-2018 ACS Estimates). The need for supportive services in the community grew as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold. In response, Master’s Kitchen began serving hot meals in take away containers and increased our weekly offering from a single meal to three different meals to last the weekend. The total number of meals served went from 60 per week to 350-400 per week on average, reaching a peak of 525 meals per week in the summer of 2020.
