Community Care Kitchen (CCK) is a local, grassroots non for profit comprised of volunteers dedicated to serving the community and eradicating food insecurity.
Our Work involves supporting the most vulnerable members of our community, including those families living below the poverty line with services that are culturally appropriate and tailored towards multicultural audiences
Our Mission is to assist those living below the poverty line with care, dignity and respect while mobilising members to get involved and actively volunteer within their community.
Our Vision is to create a culturally appropriate volunteering platform where members of the community volunteer their time and energy back into the community, facilitating our Zero food insecurity goal.
CCK has since evolved to facilitate all members of our community experiencing hardship. Including but not limited to, single parent families, low-income families, the elderly, the homeless, families with an ill member, families with children on the autism spectrum, refugee and asylum seeker families and generally anyone living below the poverty line. We advocate for volunteering within our community for all ages, faiths and persuasions. It is our genuine belief that CCK is the community and the community is CCK.
Community Care Kitchen’s phenomenal success is made possible through a talented and dedicated team of volunteers that lead with empathy and compassion.
7 years into its operations, CCK is now a registered charity with the ACNC and has supported close to 5000 people living in Sydney.
CCK has established itself within the local community and has created phenomenal pulling power to help people rapidly and when they most need it, often within a matter of hours.
We have saved lives and families with our ability to intervene in the most challenging and desperate of situations. Through our partnerships with existing organisations and businesses, we continue to unlock the potential of not-for-profit work done with the heart of a grass-roots community organisation, coupled with the repeatability of an organisation built on process.
CCK’s focus areas are a combination of our core services, special activities and Programs and Scholarships that help alleviate immediate needs and provide longer-term opportunities for growth.
