Karing Kitchen

Karing Kitchen is a GAP ministry hosted by the First United Methodist Church of Griffith. This ministry offers cooking and dining equipment (no appliances).

Karing Kitchen provides people in need with "anything kitchen". We have on hand most of the time: dishes, silverware, pots & pans, small kitchen appliances, baking ware, cooking/baking utensils, storage containers, some decorative things like canisters, vases, serving pieces, as well as odds and ends found in a kitchen. We do our best to help Love INC clients restore or rebuild a full working kitchen.
