The Agape Community Kitchen is a volunteer youth group which serves weekly meals to 300 people. They also distribute coats, shirts, jeans, underwear, socks, blankets and toiletries to people who spend their time outside, whether they are homeless or part of a shelter system.
“People who struggle don’t just live far, far away,” said Kristin Pirich, program administrator. The Agape Kitchen teaches area youth that there are plenty of people in nearby communities who need help. “The program teaches them to act locally.” Agape operates out of the Presbyterian Church in Westfield.
