Rainbow Kitchen service one-of-a-kind

Kitchen serves people of all ages and it's appreciated by the community

Oct. 7)

Now that Our Place bans anybody under the age of 19, the Rainbow Kitchen is the only place that’s open to families for lunch. It is free and open most days of the week.

The Committee to End Homelessness thinks it is a disgrace that kids go hungry. The committee will continue to advocate for the homeless and for the many folks who do have a home but don’t have enough money for food.

The committee is proud that Victoria does have one kitchen that runs on a shoestring, purely with volunteers, and does the job so well.
