St. James Community Kitchen Campaign

Share our campaign

Welcome to St. James A.M.E. Zion Church, located at 116 Cleveland Avenue in Ithaca, NY 14850. At our church, we believe in the power of community and the importance of using our God-given gifts to serve others, as 1 Peter 4:10 reminds us:

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

One way we’re putting this into action is through our kitchen transformation project. By upgrading our kitchen facilities, we’re not just improving our own capabilities but also creating a space where we can prepare delicious meals for the public. This endeavor fosters togetherness within our community and provides a valuable service to those in need.

Moreover, this initiative isn’t just about giving back—it’s also about sustainability and growth. The revenue generated from our kitchen will support our church’s mission, allowing us to continue and expand our efforts to positively impact our community. Furthermore, we’re excited to extend our kitchen’s offerings to local businesses, providing them with an opportunity to thrive as ghost kitchens by renting space from us.

In essence, we’re building more than just a kitchen; we’re creating a hub of culinary creativity and support for local businesses, all while strengthening the bonds within our community. We’re grateful to have you join us on this exciting journey of transformation and service. Thank you for being a part of it.
