Community kitchens

East End Cooperative Ministry changes the lives of those facing the impacts of poverty. Whether offering food assistance to those who are experiencing food insecurity, or working alongside those who are experiencing housing insecurity and barriers to employment, or reaching out to young people to help them work toward a brighter future, EECM is always here.

As part of this work, we develop strong community partnerships, bringing our collective networks and expertise to help veterans grow and thrive.


Hot Metal Bridge faith community on the South Side serves free meals to homeless and food challenged people every Tuesday and Thursday. For maybe 6 or 8 years, a group of folks from CHUP along with some friends, go the second Tuesday of every month. We prepare and serve a meal for at least 100 people and clean up afterwards. We welcome any and all volunteers to participate in whatever way they can: providing or preparing food ahead of time, serving our friends, cleaning up – or just tagging along to continue building loving relationships to our friends in need.

If you are interested in joining us, we generally meet at Hot Metal Bridge around 4:00 (but understand some cannot get there until later). The meal is served at 5:30 and we are usually finished cleaning up by 6:45.

Anyone who would like to help or needs a ride can contact Mollie Sam and we’ll figure it out!


We are more than an emergency shelter for adults experiencing domestic violence and their children.

We are a safe harbor that provides specialized care for survivors who have experienced all types of intimate partner violence. WC&S offers programs and services that support a survivor’s entire journey toward safety and healing.
